The Answering Voice: One Hundred Love Lyrics by Women. 1917.


Alice Freeman Palmer

DEAR Love, it was so hard to say

Good-bye to-day!

You turned to go, yet going turned to stay!

Till suddenly at last you went away.

Then all at last I found my love unsaid,

And bowed my head;

And went in tears up to my lonely bed—

Oh, would it be like this if you were dead?
