TO ——.


I HEED not that my earthly lot

Hath —— little of Earth in it —

That years of love have been forgot

In the hatred of a minute: —

I mourn not that the desolate

Are happier, sweet, than I,

But that you sorrow for my fate

Who am a passer by.



Griswold gives the first printing from the “Osgood” manuscript, with no changes.
