When first I held you

This poem was most probably written for Roy’s second wife, Mamie Bosanko.Mamie Bosanko

When first I held you in my arms
Beneath the trees
That day,
All the world shook …
Then the breeze
Died down and took
The world away,
And you and I were left alone …
And I could only look
Into your eyes and say
That you were mine at last,
My own!
