by Alfred Tennyson, Lord (1809 - 1892)

Sun comes, moon comes
Language: English 
Sun comes, moon comes,
Time slips away.
Sun sets, moon sets,
Love, fix a day!
A year hence, a year hence.
We shall both be gray.
A month hence, a month hence.
Far, far away!

A week hence, a week hence.
Ah! the long delay!
Wait a little, wait a little,
You shall fix a day.
Tomorrow love, tomorrow,
And that's an age away.

Blaze upon her window, sun,
In honour of the day!
