On Halloween

by Flavel Scott Mines

(Adagio con expressione)

Do you remember a year ago
In the embers burning red and low,
We tried our fortunes on this eve?
Did you the augury believe --
How, before the year had fully fled,
I was to be engaged to wed?

The year will pass away to night.
The Fates may then have been aright,
Although 'tis said Love will not mind
Those ruling sisters of mankind.
Still pray I that their words were true:
Alone it rests, my love, with you.
