Last Line: Years have conspired their magic to destroy.
Subject(s): Memory; Thought; Thinking


I WILL awake with dawn, arise and go
Far down the countryside to learn if still
There is mad music in the tumbling rill
And barefoot memories where rivers flow,
Or shining dreams on fruit-trees hung with snow,
Balm in the breath of morning, — and a thrill
In hearing ploughmen singing while they till
Dew-diamonded fields: — I am sick to know
If these things greet me with the old-time charm,
Entrance me as they did when but a boy,
I thought the world was just my father's farm,
And living was a rainbow dream of joy;
I will arise — I have a vague alarm,
Years have conspired their magic to destroy.
