THE FULFILMENT

                                         In Memoriam H. C. L.—’Obiit, Dec. 14, 1895.’

                        WE knew him, as a Stranger come from far
                           Who moved among us, full of friendly glee;
                        Yet held not all his thoughts— mountain and
                              star
                           And distant Voices called him ceaselessly.

                        So was he with us for a little while—
                           Eager of spirit, yet a traveller guest,
                        Flushed with the ardours of day-dream and toil:
                           Then Nature summoned him to Come and rest!

                                                                                                W. M.
