A Parting Guest

A Parting Guest

 What delightful hosts are they -- 
 Life and Love! 
Lingeringly I turn away, 
 This late hour, yet glad enough 
They have not withheld from me 
 Their high hospitality.
So, with face lit with delight 
 And all gratitude, I stay 
 Yet to press their hands and say, 
 -- So fine a time! Good night.
