Another Favorite poem from long ago… free copy-thanks to Portable Poetry

A.E. Housman : With Rue My Heart Is Laden

With rue my heart is laden
  For golden friends I had,
For many a rose-lipt maiden
  And many a lightfoot lad.

By brooks too broad for leaping
  The lightfoot boys are laid;
The rose-lipt girls are sleeping
  In fields where roses fade.
A.E. Housman (1859-1936
