Memories
By John Esten Cooke (1830–1886)
 
  THE FLUSH of sunset dies
Far on ancestral trees,
On the bright-booted bees,
On cattle-dotting leas;
  And a mist is in my eyes—        5
For in a stranger land
Halts the quick-running sand,
Shaken by no dear hand!
 
  How plain is the flowering grass—
The sunset-flooded door;        10
I hear the river’s roar
Say clearly “Nevermore.”
  I see the cloud-shadows pass
Over my mountain meres:
Gone are the rose-bright years,        15
Drowned in a sea of tears.
