Here you will find the Poem Never Again of poet Hugh McCrae
SHE looked on me with sadder eyes than Death, And, moving through the large, autumnal trees, Failed like a phantom on the bitter breath Of midnight; and the unillumined seas Roared in the darkness out of centuries. Never on earth, or in the holy sky, Beyond the limits of the secret ring God walls about His Kingdom jealously, Has ever been a fairer, sweeter thing Than she: more fair than all imagining. Never again! though I should waste the hours To search the galleries of angels thro?, Or, in the exhalation of the flowers, Gaze for her spirit, tremulous as dew, To reascend the unfathomable blue. I seek her in the labyrinthine maze Of stars unravelling their golden chain, And, from my cavern, mark the lightning blaze A pathway for her down the singing rain. In vain, in vain: she cannot come again.
