Nailah's Favorite Poem Friday! Just Another NFPF Moment!

Two Lovers By George Eliot

Two lovers by a moss-grown spring: 
They leaned soft cheeks together there, 
Mingled the dark and sunny hair, 
And heard the wooing thrushes sing. 
O budding time! 
O love's blest prime! 

Two wedded from the portal stept: 
The bells made happy carolings, 
The air was soft as fanning wings, 
White petals on the pathway slept. 
O pure-eyed bride! 
O tender pride! 

Two faces o'er a cradle bent: 
Two hands above the head were locked: 
These pressed each other while they rocked, 
Those watched a life that love had sent. 
O solemn hour! 
O hidden power! 

Two parents by the evening fire: 
The red light fell about their knees 
On heads that rose by slow degrees 
Like buds upon the lily spire. 
O patient life! 
O tender strife! 

The two still sat together there, 
The red light shone about their knees; 
But all the heads by slow degrees 
Had gone and left that lonely pair. 
O voyage fast! 
O vanished past! 

The red light shone upon the floor 
And made the space between them wide; 
They drew their chairs up side by side, 
Their pale cheeks joined, and said, "Once more!" 
O memories! 
O past that is!
