Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
1599. To Faustine
 
By Arthur Colton
 
 
SOMETHING, it may be, you and I
In some deserted yard will lie
Where Memory fades away;
Caring no more for Love his dreams,
Busy with new and alien themes,        5
The saints and sages say.
 
But let our graves be side by side,
So idlers may at evening tide
Pause there a moment’s space:
“Ah, they were lovers who lie here;        10
Else why these low graves laid so near,
In this forgotten place?”
