Love returns on Saturdays,
Having been away
To labor in the labyrinth
That underlies our joy.

How dark the days of abstinence,
Of sleep too dire to stay,
Of mornings mere mechanical
And flesh no hands employ!

But then--Ah, then!--on Saturdays
Love finally has its way,
Coming into crevices
Whose cravings passions buoy.

How beautiful, the love that can
Such soporifics sway!
No wasteland world of weekdays shall
Our dalliance destroy!
