Till I wake (1903)

Till I wake

When I am dying, lean over me tenderly, softly...
Stoop, as the yellow roses droop
In the wind from the south;
So I may when I wake - if there be an awakening -
Keep what lulled me to sleep -
The touch of your lips on my mouth.


The pseudonym of English poet Adela Florence Nicolson
