If Those I Loved were Lost


If those I loved were lost
The Crier's voice would tell me --
If those I loved were found
The bells of Ghent would ring --

Did those I loved repose
The Daisy would impel me.
Philip -- when bewildered
Bore his riddle in!

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
