A REMINISCENCE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: It is so long gone by, and yet
Last Line: To these dark mysteries of death ?


IT is so long gone by, and yet
How clearly now I see it all !
The glimmer of your cigarette,
The little chamber, narrow and tall.

Perseus ; your picture in its frame ;
(How near they seem and yet how far !)
The blaze of kindled logs ; the flame
Of tulips in a mighty jar.

Florence and spring-time : surely each
Glad things unto the spirit saith.
Why did you lead me in your speech
To these dark mysteries of death ?
