When Love is Over - Song of Khan Zada

A poem by Laurence Hope (Adela Florence Cory Nicolson)

Only in August my heart was aflame,
Catching the scent of your Wind-stirred hair,
Now, though you spread it to soften my sleep
Through the night, I should hardly care.

Only last August I drank that water
Because it had chanced to cool your hands;
When love is over, how little of love
Even the lover understands!
