Arthur Quiller-Couch, ed. 1919. The Oxford Book of English Verse: 1250–1900.
Walter Savage Landor. 1775–1864
573. Years
YEARS, many parti-colour'd years, 
  Some have crept on, and some have flown 
Since first before me fell those tears 
  I never could see fall alone. 
Years, not so many, are to come,         5
  Years not so varied, when from you 
One more will fall: when, carried home, 
  I see it not, nor hear Adieu.
