What seek I here to gather into words?
The scenes that rise before me as I turn
The pages of old times. A word -- a name --
Conjures the past before me, till it grows
More actual than the present: that -- I see
But with the common eyes of daily life,
Imperfect and impatient; but the past
Out of imagination works its truth,
And grows distinct with poetry.
