The Harvard Classics. 1909–14.

Walter Savage Landor

546. Absence

HERE, ever since you went abroad,

If there be change, no change I see:

I only walk our wonted road,

The road is only walk’d by me.

Yes; I forgot; a change there is—

Was it of that you bade me tell?

I catch at times, at times I miss

The sight, the tone, I know so well.
