by Arthur Symons (1865 - 1945)
To part now and parting now, Never to meet again; To have done for ever; I and thou, With joy, and so with pain. It is too hard, too hard to meet If we trust love no more; Those other meetings were too sweet That went before. And I would have, now love is over, An end to all, and end: I cannot, having been your lover, Stoop to become your friends!
