When We Two Walked
WHEN WE TWO WALKED by EDWARD THOMAS
When we two walked in Lent We imagined that happiness Was something different And this was something less.
But happy were we to hide Our happiness, not as they were Who acted in their pride Juno and Jupiter:
For the gods in their jealousy Murdered that wife and man, And we that were wise live free To recall our happiness then.
