Alone Without You

Sweet rose amongst the poppies,
Tender prison of dreaming eyes,
Here is found a broken love
from thorns, from silt, from dew;

In shame, I have nothing to give,
Nothing pure, nothing true,
Little more than red drops brought
from dripping thumb;

I can only love you with kisses,
Dreams drawn with open mouth
and gently smiling heart,
In love and silently without;

Sweet rose amongst the poppies,
Tender prison of dreaming eyes,
I can only love you with kisses,
Dreams drawn with open mouth.
