Love Me at Last
By Alice Corbin
From “Old Songs for New”

LOVE me at last, or if you will not,
    Leave me;
Hard words could never, as these half-words,
    Grieve me:
Love me at last—or leave me.        5
Love me at last, or let the last word uttered
    Be but your own;
Love me, or leave me—as a cloud, a vapor,
    Or a bird flown.
Love me at last—I am but sliding water        10
    Over a stone.
