MUCH A LITTLE WHILE by Harry ("Breaker") Morant

"Love me little, love me long" -
Laggard lover penn'd such song.
Rather, Neil! - In other style -
Love me much, a little while.

If that minstrel ever knew Maid so kissable as you - (Like you? - There wa snever such) He'd have written, "Love me much."
Other loves have pass'd away! Sprintimes never last alway! 'Twill be better - will it not To think that once we lov'd "a lot."

"The Breaker"
