In Memoriam A.H.H.

         
            LXII.
             
      Tho’ if an eye that’s downward cast
          Could make thee somewhat blench or fail,
          Then be my love an idle tale,
      And fading legend of the past;

      And thou, as one that once declined,
          When he was little more than boy,
          On some unworthy heart with joy,
      But lives to wed an equal mind;

      And breathes a novel world, the while
          His other passion wholly dies,
          Or in the light of deeper eyes
      Is matter for a flying smile.
