Love Overcomes Distance
Love! you are leading me from my cold land.
Lady! you lead me to your summer home
Where I may taste the blossoms that expand
As the sun warms our two hearts, flesh and moan,
For again my timid lips will grow bold
And make poetry with yours in dewy rhyme
As great bliss and great happiness unfold
To grow like lusty flowers - July's ripe time.
Love! you are leading me away from cold.
Lady! you lead me to more moonlit nights
Where on your balcony we can be bold
Like last July, loving lovers' delights.
How could I decline winter made summer,
To lie in the sun and let our love simmer?
