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.

— A. E. Housman

He would not stay for me, and who can wonder?

He would not stay for me, and who can wonder?
He would not stay for me to stand and gaze.
I shook his hand, and tore my heart in sunder,
And went with half my life about my ways.

— A. E. Housman
