Rendezvous

[Rendezvous] [Marion’s brackets ]

Confirmed in hope , confirmed in ecstasy ,
What do your senses cling to, now she comes ?
The duster shaken from a gabled window ,
The click of high heeled shoes upon the cobbles ,
The acrobatic sparrow pecking crumbs .

What proof of hope, what proof of ecstasy
Will your mind clutch at when the parting comes ?
The duster shaken from a gabled window,
The click of high heeled shoes upon the cobbles ,
The acrobatic sparrow pecking crumbs .

How much of hope, how much of ecstasy
Will your soul grope for when her memory comes ?
The duster shaken from a gabled window,
The click of high heeled shoes upon the cobbles ,
The acrobatic sparrow pecking crumbs .
