Andrew Macphail, comp.  The Book of Sorrow.  1916.
 
XXII. Irrevocable
The Unreturning
By Bliss Carman (1861–1929)
 
THE OLD eternal spring once more
  Comes back the sad eternal way,
With tender rosy light before
  The going-out of day.
 
The great white moon across my door        5
  A shadow in the twilight stirs;
But now for ever comes no more
  That wondrous look of Hers.
