LOVE came loitering down the way,
  (Heart, but we two were young!)
Laughter light in his eyes there lay,
  Music was on his tongue;
"Stay, Love, stay–walk with us, pray! "
  (Sweet were the songs he sung.)

Love with us goes wandering still,
  (Heart, but his songs are sweet!)
Suns may shine, or the rains beat chill,
  What matter cold or heat ?
Blue or grey, Love goes our way;
  (Summer follows his feet.)

Love, he has been a comrade true,
  (Heart, how the seasons fly!)
Joy and Sorrow have found us too,
  Greeted and passed us by;
So Love stay, they may go their way;
  (And Love can never die.)
