William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Georgian Verse.  1909.
 
Remembrance
By Anne Hunter (1742–1821)
 
THE SEASON comes when first we met
  But you return no more;
Why cannot I the days forget,
  Which time can ne’er restore?
O days too sweet, too bright to last,        5
Are you indeed for ever past?
 
The fleeting shadows of delight,
  In memory I trace;
In fancy stop their rapid flight
  And all the past replace.        10
But ah! I wake to endless woes,
And tears the fading vision close!
