HUNTING HORNS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Our story is noble and tragic
Last Line: Whose sound dies on the breeze.
Alternate Author Name(s): Kostrowitzky, Wilhelm Apollina
Subject(s): Memory


Our story is noble and tragic
As a tyrant's mask;
No dangerous drama or magic;
No detail unpoetic
Makes our love-dream pathetic.

And Thomas De Quincey drinking
His opiate hippocras
Of his poor Ann wandered thinking
Let us pass, since all things pass
I shall return at my ease.

Memories are hunting horns
Whose sound dies on the breeze.
