Lampman, 1889


  • Though fancy and the might of rhyme,
    That turneth like the tide,
    Have borne me many a musing time,
    Beloved, from thy side

    Ah yet, I pray thee, deem not Sweet,
    Those hours were given in vain;
    Within these covers to thy feet
    I bring them back again
    • Dedication to His Wife, Among the Millet and Other Poems (J. Duire & Son Ottawa 1888).
