One Year Ago
By Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)
ONE year ago my path was green,
My footstep light, my brow serene;
Alas! and could it have been so
        One year ago?
There is a love that is to last        5
When the hot days of youth are past:
Such love did a sweet maid bestow
        One year ago.
I took a leaflet from her braid
And gave it to another maid.        10
Love! broken should have been thy bow
        One year ago.
