One Sister have I in our house


One Sister have I in our house -

And one a hedge away.

There's only one recorded,

But both belong to me.

  

One came the way that I came -         

And wore my past year's gown -

The other as a bird her nest,

Builded our hearts among.

  

She did not sing as we did -

It was a different tune -     

Herself to her a Music

As Bumble-bee of June.

  

Today is far from Childhood -

But up and down the hills

I held her hand the tighter -         

Which shortened all the miles -

  

And still her hum 

The years among,

Deceives the Butterfly;

Still in her Eye 

The Violets lie

Mouldered this many May.         

  

I spilt the dew -

But took the morn, -

I chose this single star

From out the wide night's numbers -

Sue - forevermore!
