F
There was nothing separate about her days,
Like drops upon a window-pane, they ran
together and trickled away. . .

From cold and noise and pain,
And bolts the door against her heart,
Out wailing in the rain.
A
She was always pleased to have him come and
never sorry to see him go.
N

In a duller dress.
K
Then if my friendships break and bend,
There's little need to cry
The while I know that every foe
Is faithful till I die.
