An April Ghost
By Lizette Woodworth Reese
ALL the ghosts I ever knew,
  White, and thinly calling,
Come into the house with you,
  When the dew is falling.
All of youth that ever died,        5
  In the Spring-time weather,
In the windy April tide,
  Climb the dusk together.
For a moment, lad and maid
  Stand up there all lonely;        10
In a moment fade and fade—
  You are left, you only.
