Would you say this is a melancholic or sarcastic break-up?
Fin de Fête was written by Charlotte Mew (1869-1928), an English poet.
Sweetheart, for such a day One mustn’t grudge the score; Here, then, it’s all to pay, It’s Good-night at the door. Good-night and good dreams to you,— Do you remember the picture-book thieves Who left two children sleeping in a wood the long night through, And how the birds came down and covered them with leaves? So you and I should have slept,—But now, Oh, what a lonely head! With just the shadow of a waving bough In the moonlight over your bed.
This was intentionally published on February 14th, since it’s the best day to go through break-ups. No doubt.
