Poetry of Kansas

The Little Love

O little love I threw away
    The many years ago!
That I should need you so today
    How could I know?
A slender thing, a tender thing,
    A rare thing, all my own.
And now my heart goes whispering
    Your name, alone.
O little love I threw away,
    So wistful and so true,
My heart could break for you today .   .   .
    Would God you knew!
