A Reminiscence
By Amy Levy
IT is so long gone by, and yet
  How clearly now I see it all!
The glimmer of your cigarette,
  The little chamber, narrow and tall.
Perseus; your picture in its frame;        5
  (How near they seem and yet how far!)
The blaze of kindled logs; the flame
  Of tulips in a mighty jar.
Florence and spring-time: surely each
  Glad things unto the spirit saith.        10
Why did you lead me in your speech
  To these dark mysteries of death?
