I am trying to find the who, when, and where etc for this poem. It goes something like this and is likely wirtten around 1920 or so?

"We know not whither the clouds have fled, in the unscarred heavens they leave no wake. The eyes forget the tears they have shed, the soul forgets its sorrow and ache."

It's from 'The Vision of Sir Launfal.

Joy comes, grief goes, we know not how;
Everything is happy now,
Everything is upward striving;
'T is as easy now for the heart to be true
As for grass to be green or skies to be blue, --
'T is the natural way of living:
Who knows whither the clouds have fled?
In the unscarred heaven they leave no wake;
And the eyes forget the tears they have shed,
The heart forgets its sorrow and ache;
The soul partakes the season's youth,
And the sulphurous rifts of passion and woe
Lie deep 'neath a silence pure and smooth,
Like burnt-out craters healed with snow.
What wonder if Sir Launfal now
Remembered the keeping of his vow?

James Russell Lowell
