That Song

In her eyes only are his lucky num­bers,
so he – old-fashio­ned as he is –
calls her “sweet-of-my-heart,
dar­ling of my remem­brance –
“you have so many good songs
to thrill then calm my ears.
No water lap­ping by sea­shore,
no wind in the willows,
no dis­tant vio­lin or far-off bell
can com­pare with your songs,
dar­ling of dis­tances soon to be recko­ned.

But you’ve one song I’ve never heard,
the one you’ve denied me,
and I miss it more than all the coins I’ve lost
through sloth & fol­ly,
all the pen­nies left in hea­ven.
