The Vanished Children by Zora Cross

| No TrackBacks
The children came from the dark and said:
   "Mother, have you forgotten us?
   Do you remember us? 'Twas thus
We did ere we were dead."

As the sand slips under the air,
   As the air skims over the sea,
   Memory came back to me,
And I was grown aware
   Of the white girls and the brown boys
   Playing with lonely toys,
   Who kissed me a thousand years ago
   In a dream I used to know

First published in The Australian Woman's Mirror, 25 August 1925
