"A Little Place Apart"
Marjory Nicholls, Collected Poems, comp. Niel Wright (Wellington: Original Books, 2009).
1A little garden have I made me here,
2 Of tender, fragrant plants--none bright or gay--
3And hither shall I come in twilight-time
4 To dream awhile of the dear yesterday.
5A little breeze comes whispering from the Past--
6 A magic whisper, wondrous soft and sweet;
7I kneel upon the path, to closer come
8 To those dear blossoms growing at my feet.
11Thinking of you--Death came so soon to you ...
12 Another breeze blows by.--'Tis strangely cold.
