Alfred Edward Housman

26 March 1859 – 30 April 1936 / Worcestershire

Oh, When I Was In Love With You

Oh, when I was in love with you,
Then I was clean and brave,
And miles around the wonder grew
How well did I behave.

And now the fancy passes by,
And nothing will remain,
And miles around they'll say that I
Am quite myself again.
