MATE (2), by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Out of the countless teeming throng
Last Line: A haunting memory.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Love; Memory; Women

Out of the countless teeming throng
Of women sweetly fair
Is one, just one alone, who stands
Undimmed and shining there.

There may have been no lover's tryst
No touch of pulsing hand
But there are surges in the soul
The heart may understand.

Perhaps you saw her in the rush
Of by-gone yesterday ...
In each man's life one woman is
A haunting memory.
