Envoy

Over and over, carefully to con
‘thy tablets, Memory,’
myself accustomed, the one being gone
who prompted all; night having fallen upon
that territory
where, season by season, we had watched unfold
fugitive beauty; impotent and cold
transcriptions, yet these now shall be
thanks for felicity.
 



From Time and Place (Caxton, 1936)
