Regret
 
Richard Le Gallienne (1866–1947)
 
 
ONE asked of Regret,
  And I made reply:
To have held the bird,
  And let it fly;
To have seen the star        5
  For a moment nigh,
And lost it
  Through a slothful eye;
To have plucked the flower
  And cast it by;        10
To have one only hope—
  To die.
