Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  A Victorian Anthology, 1837–1895.  1895.
 
Absence
 
John Arthur Blaikie (b. 185–)
 
 
IF not now soft airs may blow

From thy haven unto me,
If not now last Autumn’s glow
  Thrill delight ’twixt me and thee,
Call up Memory, oh, entreat her,        5
In the present there ’s none sweeter.
 
One true thought and constant only
  To that pleasurable time
Me sufficeth to make lonely
  All the void and mocking prime        10
Of this summertide, whose story
Pales in that exceeding glory.
