REMAIN?, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Fancy, you are mad: remain
Last Line: I'm tired of having been.
Subject(s): Solitude; Loneliness


Fancy, you are mad: Remain?
You'd be alone—all things die, all.
Stay like a shadow on the window-pane,
Like a portrait smiling on the wall?

It's too much now, that we delay.
Our hour is far upon its way—
What is it that you strain to view
Down there? What's that you're listening to?

Remain? But I am wholly reft
Of smiles, of dreams, I summered in. ...
By other roadways they have left.
I'm tired of having been.
