Forgotten friend! forgot beyond The soul of solace in the cold, Friend whose tale is yet untold Resurrect! and before me stand. Let memory chalice the ghost Spilled to rumors beyond recall; He lives yet, he did not fall, Yet his bodying has no host. What is this absent creature then Who lives to others, shares their views Of russet sunsets, yet eschews The gravid face of his old friend? Damned by discord, torn in twain, Yet present to the fervid pitch Of inner sense, a lively nothing which Makes all mem'ry the mem'ry of pain. Reveal! From shadow, gloom and gloam Stand forth! and be again alive; Here, where your memory still thrives, Your dear self has yet a home.
