Poem by Thomas Bailey Aldrich


Memory


My mind lets go a thousand things
Like dates of wars and deaths of kings,
And yet recalls the very hourЧ
'T was noon by yonder village tower,
And on the last blue noon in MayЧ
The wind came briskly up this way,
Crisping the brook beside the road;
Then, pausing here, set down its load
Of pine-scents, and shook listlessly
Two petals from that wild-rose tree.
