Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  A Victorian Anthology, 1837–1895.  1895.
 
Then and Now
 
Rennell Rodd (b. 1858)
 
 
THERE never were such radiant noons,
  Such roses, such fair weather,
Such nightingales, such mellow moons,
  As while we were together!
 
But now the suns are poor and pale,        5
  The cloudy twilight closes,
The mists have choked the nightingale,
  The blight has killed the roses.
