Excerpt from The Three Hills and Other Poems

On a Railway Station Is it that a year ago I stood upon this self-same spot Is it that since a year ago The place and I have altered not Is it that I half forgot, A year ago, and all despised For a space the things that I had prized The race of life, the glittering show Is it that now a year has passed Of vain pursuit of glittering things, Of fruitless searching, shouting, running, And greedy lies and candour cunning, Here as I stand the year above Sudden the heats and the strivings fail And fall away, a fiuctuant veil, And the fixed familiar stones restore The old appearance-buried core, The moveless and essential me, The eternal personality Alone enduring first and last i' No, this I have known in other ways, In other places, other days.
