Poetry of Kansas
 

Constancy.

I ne'er can love another
    As long as life may stand.
No maid the wide world over
    Shall hold this heart or hand.
As long as life lasts still shall gleam
    My love's undying ember.
I loved her in life's spring time,
    I love her in December.
Tho I should wed another,
    No love could bless the tie.
My heart pleads on forever,
    The grave makes no reply.
