YOU HAVE COME BACK, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: You have come back,' they say to me
Last Line: "'tis you who have come back, not I."

"YOU have come back," they say to me,
The people of the old, old town.
In speech I with their speech agree,
But doubts have I that will not down.

For more and more to me it seems
That both the village and its folk,
Whom I so oft have seen in dreams
(Have seen, then lingeringly awoke) --

Have but returned, dream-wise, again,
And as a vision will go by.
So to make answer I am fain,
"'Tis you who have come back, not I."
