The Letter Marked "Unclaimed"
I wrote you a letter, darling.
Now your silence is explained
For the postman just returned it
And, my dear, it’s marked “unclaimed”.
So the seal will stay unbroken
And a broken heart remains
There with every word I wrote you
In this letter marked, “unclaimed.”
I know we will meet again, dear,
In a world of peace and rest.
Then we’ll climb the ivy mountain
Where the sun slopes down the west.
There my heart will whisper, darling,
To your heart in sweet refrain.
Then we’ll write the answer, darling,
To this letter marked “unclaimed.”
