First Line: Ah! There are memories that will not vanish

Alternate Author Name(s): L. E. L.; Maclean, Letitia
Subject(s): Memory


AH! there are memories that will not vanish;
Thoughts of the past we have no power to banish;
To shew the heart how powerless mere will,
For we may suffer, and yet struggle still.
It is not at our choice that we forget,
That is a power no science teaches yet:
The heart may be a dark and closed up tomb;
But memory stands a ghost amid the gloom!
