Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  A Victorian Anthology, 1837–1895.  1895.
 
In the States
 
Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–94)
 
 
WITH half a heart I wander here
  As from an age gone by,
A brother—yet though young in years,
  An elder brother, I.
 
You speak another tongue than mine,        5
  Though both were English born.
I towards the night of time decline,
  You mount into the morn.
 
Youth shall grow great and strong and free,
  But age must still decay:        10
To-morrow for the States—for me,
  England and Yesterday.
