By the Spring at Sunset

by
 Sometimes we remember kisses,
Remember the dear heart-leap when they came:
Not always, but sometimes we remember
The kindness, the dumbness, the good flame
Of laughter and farewell.
Beside the road Afar from those who said "Good-by" I write, Far from my city task, my lawful load.
Sun in my face, wind beside my shoulder, Streaming clouds, banners of new-born night Enchant me now.
The splendors growing bolder Make bold my soul for some new wise delight.
I write the day's event, and quench my drouth, Pausing beside the spring with happy mind.
And now I feel those kisses on my mouth, Hers most of all, one little friend most kind.
