STEPHEN HEMSLEY LONGRIGG
Here were the end, had anything an end. . . .
The act, over and ended, falls and fades:
What was once seen, grows what is now described,
Then talked of, told about, a tinge the less
In every fresh transmission; till it melts,
Trickles in silent orange or wan grey
Across our memory . . . . . . .
