Love Me at Last

by Alice Corbin Henderson

LOVE me at last, or if you will not,
     Leave me; Hard words could never, as these half-words,
     Grieve me:
Love me at last or leave me.

Love me at last, or let the last word uttered
     Be but your own;
Love me, or leave me as a cloud, a vapor,
     Or a bird flown.
Love me at last I am but sliding water
     Over a stone.
