said it so well.
A thought went up my mind to-day
That I have had before,
But did not finish,- some way back,
I could not fix the year.
Nor where it went, nor why it came
The second time to me,
Nor definitely what it was,
Have I the art to say.
But somewhere in my soul, I know
I’ve met the thing before;
It just reminded me- ‘t was all-
And came my way no more.
(My apologies if you saw this here before – I was fighting with the format and posted it for a minute by accident. I don’t mean to repeat myself.)
