Threnody

Lilacs blossom just as sweet
Now my heart is shattered,
If I bowled it down the street
Who's to say it mattered?
 
If there's one that rode away
What would I be missing?
Lips that taste of tears, they say
Are the best for kissing...
 
Eyes that watch the morning star
Seem a little brighter;
Arms held out to darkness
Are usually whiter.
 
Shall I bar the strolling guest?
Bind my brow with willow
When, they say, the empty breast
Is the softer pillow?
 
That a heart falls tinkling down
Never think it ceases...
Every likely lad in town
Gathers up the pieces.
 
If there's one gone whistling by
Would I let it grieve me?
Let him wonder if I lie,
Let him half believe me...
 
Thanks!
