The Author A. E. Housman

A Shropshire Lad - XVIII


    Oh, when I was in love with you,
    Then I was clean and brave,
    And miles around the wonder grew
    How well did I behave.

    And now the fancy passes by,
    And nothing will remain,
    And miles around they'll say that I
    Am quite myself again.
