Fuess and Stearns, comps.  The Little Book of Society Verse.  1922.
 
Verse
By Walter Savage Landor
 
PAST ruin’d Dion Helen lives,
  Alcestis rises from the shades;
Verse calls them forth; ’t is verse that gives
  Immortal youth to mortal maids.
 
Soon shall Oblivion’s deepening veil        5
  Hide all the peopled hills you see,
The gay, the proud, while lovers hail
  These many summers you and me.
