Let it be Forgotten

Original Text: 
Flame and Shadow (New York: Macmillan, 1924). PS 3539 .E15F6 Robarts Library
1Let it be forgotten, as a flower is forgotten,
2    Forgotten as a fire that once was singing gold,
3Let it be forgotten for ever and ever,
4    Time is a kind friend, he will make us old.
5If anyone asks, say it was forgotten
6    Long and long ago,
7As a flower, as a fire, as a hushed footfall
8    In a long forgotten snow.
