ONLY a LITTLE

Only a little, for love
Will hardly seem worth thinking of
To sultry women if it seem
Certain, and they never dream
That it fades out from kiss to kiss;
For everything that’s alluring is
But a brief mythical kind of ecstasy

O only give a little for love,
For they, for all smooth lips can say,
Have given their hearts up to the play
And who could play it well enough
If deaf, dumb and blind with love?
He that made this knows all the cost,
For he gave all his heart and lost.
