Song (For Two Voices)

 

           SP. or MZ. SOPRANO 

I bound his soul by a word and an oath
   (Light Loves pass as the gusts of Spring) 
Lo! in a year he had broken both 
   And I am worn and sorrowing.
                    
                 CONTRALTO 

I bound his soul by my two eyes' might— 
   My lips' red seal was upon his brow
Between the nightingale's song and the night—
   Wherefore I rule his spirit now—
