There was a child once.

He came to play in my garden;

He was quite pale and silent.

Only when he smiled I knew everything about him,

I knew what he had in his pockets,

And I knew the feel of his hands in my hands

And the most intimate tones of his voice.

I led him down each secret path,

Showing him the hiding-place of all my treasures.

I let him play with them, every one,

I put my singing thoughts in a little silver cage

And gave them to him to keep...

It was very dark in the garden

But never dark enough for us.On tiptoe we walked

among the deepest shades;

We bathed in the shadow pools beneath the trees,

Pretending we were under the sea.

Once--near the boundary of the garden--

We heard steps passing along the World-road;

O how frightened we were!

I whispered:"Have you ever walked along that road?"

He nodded, and we shook the tears from our eyes....



There was a child once.

He came--quite alone--to play in my garden;

He was pale and silent.

When we met we kissed each other,

But when he went away, we did not even wave
