Housman, A.E. - Heart, Loss, Wind
"Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?
That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again."
- from "The Welsh Marches", A Shropshire Lad (1896)
- Alfred Edward (A.E.) Housman (English poet and scholar, b. 1859 - d. 1936)
