Heart, we will forget him,
You and I, tonight!
You must forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.
When you have done pray tell me,
Then I, my thoughts, will dim.
Haste! ‘lest while you’re lagging
I may remember him!

- Such Is The Force Of Happiness
- Houses—so The Wise Men Tell Me—
- Further In Summer Than The Birds
- It Bloomed And Dropt, A Single Noon
- Could I—then—shut The Door
