Poetry of Kansas

On A Rainy Night.

My love tonight is far away;
    And I am sad and lonely;
My restive spirit night and day
    Is longing for her only.
 
I see her in my fondest moods,
    She haunts the parlor hallway;
And yet her form my clasp eludes,
    Her lips my kisses alway.
 
But soon our lives will intertwine,
    As now our loves are blended;
For I am hers and she is mine,
    Till life and love are ended.

__Harry Edward Mills.
