by Alfred Tennyson, Lord (1809 - 1892)

Winds are loud and you are dumb
Language: English 
Winds are loud and you are dumb:
Take my love, for love will come,
Love will come but once a life,
Love will come but once a life.

Winds are loud and winds will pass!
Spring is here with leaf and grass:
Take my love and be my wife,
Take my love and be my wife!

After loves of maids and men
Are but dainties drest again.
Love me now, you'll love me then.
Love can love but once a life,
Love can love but once a life.
