Song
 
Margaret Widdemer
 
 
THE SPRING will come when the year turns,
  As if no Winter had been,
But what shall I do with a locked heart
  That lets no new year in?
 
The birds will go when the Fall goes,        5
  The leaves will fade in the field,
But what shall I do with an old love
  Will neither die nor yield?
 
Oh! youth will turn as the world turns,
  And dim grow laughter and pain,        10
But how shall I hide from an old dream
  I never may dream again?
