XI
"Did You Never Know?"
 

Did you never know, long ago, how much you loved me --
  That your love would never lessen and never go?
You were young then, proud and fresh-hearted,
  You were too young to know.

Fate is a wind, and red leaves fly before it
  Far apart, far away in the gusty time of year --
Seldom we meet now, but when I hear you speaking,
  I know your secret, my dear, my dear.
