The Last Lady
By Matthew Josephson
I HAVE now no love nor lady,
  Yet I do not wail bereft:
There are many, many beautiful ladies,
  And in the world there is much love left.
I have now no love nor lady;        5
  I have made a brave good-bye.
It is terrible not to have a lady
  When the summer months run high.
And the summer and the autumn
  And the winter may be gone;        10
But my mind is quite decided—
  I shall have no other one.
It will need a greener spring-time
  To seed new love in me.
But in another spring-time—        15
  Ah—where shall I be?
