WE TWO IN ARCADY.
When we two walked in Arcady (How long ago it seems!) How thick the branches overhead, liow soft the grass beneath our tread! And thickets where the sun burned red Were full of wings astir, my dear, When we two walked in Arcady Through paths young hearts prefer. Since we two walked in Arcady (How long ago it seems!) Hiirh hopes have died disconsolate; Thp calm-eyed angel men call Fate Stands with drawn sword before our gate That shuts out all our dreams, my dear, Since we two walked in Arcady Eeside the crystal streams. Beyond the woods of Arcady The little brooks are dry, The brown grass rustles in the heat. The roads are rough beneath our feet, Above our heads no branches meet, And yet. although we sigh, my dear, Beyond the woods of Arcady We see more of the sky! London Dispatch.
