The Answering Voice: One Hundred Love Lyrics by Women.  1917.
From a Car-window
By Ruth Guthrie Harding
PINES, and a blur of lithe young grasses;
  Gold in a pool, from the western glow;
Spread of wings where the last thrush passes—
  And thoughts of you as the sun dips low.
Quiet lane, and an irised meadow …        5
  (How many summers have died since then?)…
I wish you knew how the deepening shadow
  Lies on the blue and green again!
Dusk, and the curve of field and hollow
  Etched in gray when a star appears:        10
Sunset,… twilight,… and dark to follow,…
  And thoughts of you through a mist of tears.
