C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Changed
By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)
 
FROM the outskirts of the town
  Where of old the milestone stood,
Now a stranger, looking down
I behold the shadowy crown
  Of the dark and haunted wood.        5
 
Is it changed, or am I changed?
  Ah! the oaks are fresh and green,
But the friends with whom I ranged
Through their thickets are estranged
  By the years that intervene.        10
 
Bright as ever flows the sea,
  Bright as ever shines the sun;
But alas! they seem to me
Not the sun that used to be,
  Not the tides that used to run.        15
