With My Love as of Old, 1918

WITH MY LOVE AS OF OLD.

THE roads we chose diverged so little at the setting-out
and seemed so nearly side by side! A little while
We spoke across the way, then waved our hands, and then ...
The hills between, life's other voices and the nights,
The Silences …
Old friend, no new friend takes your place. With me as well
The hours and days flow by and lengthen into years,
But I do not forget. And not a thought that you have had of me --
Whether you wrote or spoke it, or, more like,
Just thought of me and let it go at that --
But it came winging through the silences!
Wherever you are, across the distance I give you my hand,
With my love as of old.
↑Genève, Suisse.
