Poetry of Kansas

A Song.

                STILL true to you"-
The moon is shining and fast declining,
                Far in the west;
My head reposing, half wake, half dozing,
                Upon her breast;
Her heart keeps beating, and e'er repeating
                "Still true to you."
                "Still true to you"-
Sweet voices singing, to both hearts bringing
                A holy spell;
Yet something nearer I hear, and dearer
                Than chiming bell;
Her heart still beating and e'er repeating
                "Still true to you."
                "Still true to you"-
Still sinking, sinking, the moon is drinking
                From yonder sea;
And hushed the voices, but still rejoices
                That one with me,
Whose heart's soft beating is e'er repeating
                "Still true to you."
