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: [www.xanga.com] />
“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.”
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.
