„So in the heart,
When, fading slowly down the past,
Fond memories depart,
And each that leaves it seems the last;
Long after all the rest are flown,
Returns a solitary tone,—
The after-echo of departed years,—
And touches all the soul to tears.“

The After-Echo, st. 2 (1871).

You faded, tender rose! For hours now past,
Like butterflies departing, on you're cast
The worms of memories to work you woe.“
