The Apparition
By Stephen Phillips (1868–1915)
MY dead Love came to me, and said:
  ‘God gives me one hour’s rest
To spend upon the earth with thee:
  How shall we spend it best?’
‘Why, as of old,’ I said, and so        5
  We quarrell’d as of old.
But when I turn’d to make my peace
  That one short hour was told.
