    Realization   

     

    Now we have parted, and the day

    Brings not the hope of seeing thee

    Now thou hast taken that dark way

    That long I feared one thing I pray:

    Forget me not!

     

    By daylight and by moonlight grey

    I swear I only think of thee;

    And often stopping by the way

    I say the things I did not say:

    Forget me not!

     

    Chide, upbraid me if thou wilt,

    I’ll own my failings every one

    Forswear the dreams that we have built --

    I only ask to know my guilt

    Forget me not!

     

    Thy silence haunts me day by day

    And whispereth that in thy joy

    Of living, I am cast away

    Yet once, O once, to thee I’ll say

    Forget me not!

    James Fenimore Cooper, II

    1917

      Cooper -- the novelist's great grandson -- was a pilot killed in the European conflict, barely 25 years of age. His friends brought out his posthumous volume of poetry in 1918.
