INTIMATIONS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I knew the flowers had dreamed of you
Last Line: And silent flowers by night.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Memory


I KNEW the flowers had dreamed of you,
And hailed the morning with regret;
For all their faces with the dew
Of vanished joy were wet.

I knew the winds had passed your way,
Though not a sound the truth betrayed;
About their pinions all the day
A summer fragrance stayed.

And so, awaking or asleep,
A memory of lost delight
By day the sightless breezes keep,
And silent flowers by night.
