Cuckoo Songs (1894)
II. Lament
By Katharine Tynan Hinkson (1861–1931)
YOU were like a light
  In your place;
Fires of love burned bright
    In your face,
    Full of grace.        5
You were like a light in your place.
Like a light put out,
  You are flown;
Night is dark about,
    Ullagone!        10
    Cold as stone.
Like a light put out you are flown.
