The forms that once have been

The forms that once have been

“This is the place. Stand still, my steed,
Let me review the scene,
And summon from the shadowy Past
The forms that once have been.
The Past and Present here unite
Beneath Time’s flowing tide,
Like footprints hidden by a brook,
But seen on either side.”

(H.W. Longfellow in A gleam of sunshine)
