Jessie B. Rittenhouse, ed. (1869–1948).  The Little Book of Modern Verse.  1917.
 
74. Sometimes
 
By Thomas S. Jones, Jr.
 
 
ACROSS the fields of yesterday
  He sometimes comes to me,
A little lad just back from play—
  The lad I used to be.
 
And yet he smiles so wistfully        5
  Once he has crept within,
I wonder if he hopes to see
  The man I might have been.
