Subject: Lyr Add: PARTING AND MEETING AGAIN (W B Scott)

Here's the poem, from Poems by William Bell Scott (London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1875), page 64:


PARTING AND MEETING AGAIN.

Last time I parted from my dear
The linnet sang from the briar-bush,
    The throstle from the dell;
The stream too carolled full and clear,
It was the spring-time of the year,
And both the linnet and the thrush
    I love them well,
Since last I parted from my dear.

But when he came again to me
The barley rustled high and low,
    Linnet and thrush were still;
Yellowed the apple on the tree,
'Twas autumn merry as it could be,
What time the white ships come and go
    Under the hill;
They brought him back again to me,
Brought him safely o'er the sea.
