Stevenson, Robert Louis (1850–1894).  A Child’s Garden of Verses and Underwoods.  1913.
  
XXIX. In the States

WITH half a heart I wander here 
  As from an age gone by 
A brother—yet though young in years, 
  An elder brother, I. 
  
You speak another tongue than mine,         5
  Though both were English born. 
I towards the night of time decline, 
  You mount into the morn. 
  
Youth shall grow great and strong and free, 
  But age must still decay:  10
To-morrow for the States—for me, 
  England and Yesterday.
SAN FRANCISCO.
