1Love has gone a-rocketing.
2    That is not the worst;
3I could do without the thing,
4    And not be the first.
5Joy has gone the way it came.
6    That is nothing new;
7I could get along the same, --
8    Many people do.
9Dig for me the narrow bed,
10    Now I am bereft.
11All my pretty hates are dead,
12    And what have I left?
