Her Last Letter

Ella Wheeler Wilcox


I was as pure as the morning
When I first looked on your face;
I knew I never could reach you
In your high, exalted place.

But I looked and loved and worshipped
As a flower might worship a star,
And your eyes shone down upon me,
And you seemed so far... so far.
