Poem by Alfred Edward Housman


A Shropshire Lad. 18. Oh, When I Was in Love with You


Oh, when I was in love with you,
 Then I was clean and brave,
And miles around the wonder grew
 How well did I behave.

And now the fancy passes by,
 And nothing will remain,
And miles around they'll say that I
 Am quite myself again.
