Subject(s): Memory

Whence comes that tender serenade
As over the waters afar,
Mingled with the strumming
Of mandolin and guitar?

Why this leaden heat
Where orange-fragrance stirs,
And why that curious crew
Of white-cowled travelers?

This woman, who is she,
Who you might say is portrayed
By old Tintoretto
In her rich brocade?

I recall now, I recall:
They are yestergleams,
They are garlands gone to dust,
They are olden dreams.
