Poem By Walter Savage Landor

HERE, ever since you went abroad,
   If there be change no change I see:
I only walk our wonted road,
   The road is only walk'd by me.

Yes; I forgot; a change there is--
   Was it of that you bade me tell?
I catch at times, at times I miss
   The sight, the tone, I know so well.

Only two months since you stood here?
   Two shortest months? Then tell me why
Voices are harsher than they were,
   And tears are longer ere they dry.

A powerful poetry so subtly written.
Missing somebody and feeling the absence is very sad..very effective verses
A change! Thanks for sharing.
