'Lancelot and Guinevere' by Herbert Draper

Though I Did

by Alice Duggan
That light-footed feeling, long days and subways
avenues little trees shops that tempted me 
under the brownstones

All easy movement, running and stillness, sunrise

Kisses that made me tremble all over. 
Stumbling in darkness,

knocking the lamp down, falling 
onto the bed for that trembling.

I could never forget
