Lines by Samuel E. Loveman

I know no light beyond the night,
I see no star to pierce the star,
But still ‘d and windless in my sight,
There pass the dreams that once were fair.

Oh! to have known and lost all this,
The brimming youth, the joy to reap,
And in its stead a transient bliss,
To drift in unforgetting sleep.

April 20, 1911.
