Here is the ancient floor,
Footworn and hollowed and thin,
Here was the former door
Where the dead feet walked in.

She set in her chair,
Smiling into the fire ;
He who played stood there,
Bowing it higher and higher.

Childlike i danced in a dream
Blessings emblazoned that day
Everything glowed with a dream
Yet we were looking away
