Once in another land, Ages ago,
You were a queen, and I, I loved you so: Where was it that we loved - Ah, do you know?
Was it some golden star Hot with romance?
Was it in Malabar,
Italy, France? Did we know Charlemagne, Dido, perchance?
But you were a queen, and I Fought for you then: How did you honour me More than all men! Kissed me upon the lips; Kiss me again.
Have you forgotten it,
All that we said? I still remember though Ages have fled. Whisper the word of life, "Love is not dead."
