The Last Time

The kiss had been given and taken, 
And gathered to many past:
It never could reawaken;
But I heard none say: "It's the last!"

The clock showed the hour and the minute
But I did not turn and look:
I read no finis in it,
As at closing of a book.

But I read it all too rightly
When, at a time anon,
A figure lay stretched out whitely,
And I stood looking thereon.
