Alas
written by Walter de la Mare
Flora: A Book of Drawings (1919) Link to further information




 One moment take thy rest.
 Out of mere nought in space
 Beauty moved human breast
 To tell in this far face
 A dream in noonday seen.
 Never to fade or pass;
 A breath-time's mute delight;
 A joy in flight:
 The aught desire doth mean
 Sighing, Alas!
