Elaine Goodale Eastman (1863–1953)

When Did We Meet?

WHEN did I know thee and not love thee?

How could I live and know thee not?

The look of thine that first did move me

I have forgot.

Canst thou recall thy life’s beginning?

Will childhood’s conscious wonder last?

Each glance from thee, so worth the winning,

Blots all the past.
