I Remember by Kathleen Dalziel

| No TrackBacks
On whispering dusky eves, how I remember --
   Remember you!
Star-dusted nights of Summer-crowned December;
   Long days of gold and blue;
The flame that leapt, the flame that feel to ember;
   The false heart -- and the true!

No buds like those in that enchanted garden!
   Ne'er sprang to view
More splendid castles, scorning leave or pardon;
   Above forbidden faery lands of blue!
Against old realms of dream my heart must harden
   When I remember you.

The garden close is choked with rusty sorrels,
   No castles mount anew.
Tall waves the weed o'er buried hopes and quarrels --
   Long is the old love banished for the new.
But when the south wind stirs the camphor-laurels
   How I remember you!
