In Memoriam A.H.H.

         
            XLII.
             
      I vex my heart with fancies dim:
          He still outstript me in the race;
          It was but unity of place
      That made me dream I rank’d with him.

      And so may Place retain us still,
          And he the much-beloved again,
          A lord of large experience, train
      To riper growth the mind and will:

      And what delights can equal those
          That stir the spirit’s inner deeps,
          When one that loves but knows not, reaps
      A truth from one that loves and knows?
