YOU MAY REMEMBER, by            
First Line: Heart, be still of your constant agitation!
Last Line: But only now, a moment, may you hear.


Heart, be still of your constant agitation!
Sorrow may pass on swift though fragile wings;
Put joy, the while you may, upon probation,
And listen, oh listen! -- a wood thrush sings.

Be quiet, heart! Nights are long in December,
When there are empty silences and drear;
In many an hour then you may remember,
But only now, a moment, may you hear.
