|AUTHOR:||Alfred Edward Housman (18591936)|
|QUOTATION:||Into my heart an air that kills|
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?
That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.
