TO

ELSIE AND JESSIE

ROMANCE

"C'est toi qui dors dans l'ombre, ô sacré Souvenir."

If we could have remembrance now
And see, as in the days to come
We shall, what's venturous in these hours :
The swift, intangible romance of fie!ds at home,
The gleams of sun, the showers,
Our workaday contentments, or our powers
To fare still forward through the uncharted hast
Of present days. . . .

For, looking back when years shall Aow
Upon this olden day that's now,
We'll see, romantic in dimn'd hours,
These memories of ours.
