by William Sharp (1855 - 1905), as Fiona Macleod

Love came in at the door one day
Language: English 
Love came in at the door one day
To stay;
But I told him I wished for no such guest,
But that he might wait for a little rest
That day.

Love sat down on the cottage stool
So cool;
I told him he must not watch me so,
But he only laughed till my face was aglow,
Poor fool!

Love came in at the door that day
In May -
Came in with the scent of the flowering beans;
He's not gone yet, and I think he means
To stay!
