719. You'll love Me yet
YOU'LL love me yet!—and I can tarry 
  Your love's protracted growing: 
June rear'd that bunch of flowers you carry, 
  From seeds of April's sowing. 
I plant a heartful now: some seed         5
  At least is sure to strike, 
And yield—what you'll not pluck indeed, 
  Not love, but, may be, like. 
You'll look at least on love's remains, 
  A grave 's one violet:  10
Your look?—that pays a thousand pains. 
  What 's death? You'll love me yet!
