lyrics

THRENODY (THOMAS)

All the flowers of the fringed field fade
But could a dwindling rose be saved
For a winter?

Blinking poppies beat their last hurrah,
Their roots kissed in the pale scrimshaw
Of the weevils
But they will love.

Slain, the ivy reaching for the sky
Whose sinew will mollify
The moths of winter.

Soiled, the promise shivers on its stalk
The impulse flickers and is lost.
Oh, it’s lost.
But I will love.

Sweet, the honeysuckle’s fragrant swoon,
The dogwood days of guileless June
Pleasure fleeting.

Yet the woodlark’s warbling threnody
Cuts me deep but cannot be
A true parting.
For we will love.

And as the summer’s breathless cavalcade
Sweeps by, could a rose be saved
For a moment?
