For a Day

by John Vance Cheney

John Vance Cheney

Hearken Summer's song

All her glad path along:

Hand and heart together,

Come while yet you may;

In the sunny weather

Walk the happy way;

Let none delay, let none delay;

Love is only for a day.

Hearken Autumn's song

All her sad path along:

Yet a little wander

Down the happy way;

In the shadow, yonder,

Waits the spectre gray;

None says him nay, none says him nay;

Life is only for a day.
