I DIGGED thy grave in my memory
Years ago,—oh! years ago!—
And for oblivion over thee
The poppies grow, the poppies grow.
But still, when Hesperus is high,
Pansies for thoughts I drop thereby,
And let them lie, and let them lie,
Since from thy bitter I drew sweet.
Yet are the pansies at thy feet,
The pansies pale thy head above
Not sown of Love, not sown of Love.
