"The Poem `Sometimes,'" The New York Times Saturday Review of Books (April 9, 1910).
1Across the fields of yesterday
2 He sometimes comes to me,
3A little lad just back from play --
4 The lad I used to be.
5And yet he smiles so wistfully
6 Once he has crept within,
7I wonder if he hopes to see
8 The man I might have been.
