Today my little girl, behind a door,
Pulled out a sack which held old cloth and rags --
That dreams and memories may be found in bags,
When lost awhile, I never knew before.
A heap of scraps (silk, gingham, muslin, wool)
To me became the pages of a book
That told a story. -- Then just one she took
And said: "O father, see how beautiful!"
A bit of mull! . . . (We sat beside a lake,
In April time, my love and I. The trees
Bent low and turned the shaded blue to gray.
We watched the sun and sky and waters make
The afterglow there weave a living frieze) . . .
"That mull? Your mother wore it yesterday!"
