I am trying to figure out who wrote the following - or did I dream it?

Let this goodbye,
Our last goodbye,
be still and ... (something) like a ... (something)

Sorry to be so vague and not know anymore than that. Can anyone help me?

The poem by Alice Meynell, is quoted here:

and here: [] />

“Let this goodbye of ours, this last goodbye,

Be still and splendid like a forest tree.

Let there be one grand look within our eyes

Built of the wonderment of the past years,

Too vast a thing of beauty to be lost

In quivering lips and floods of tears.”

—Alice Meynell

I couldn't find the poem anywhere else on the net. Neither of these sites lists a title for the work. Perhaps, Ilza or someone else can find a copy of it in a book of Meynell's poetry.
