From Far, From Eve and Morning
by A. E. Housman

From far, from eve and morning\t
And yon twelve-winded sky,\t
The stuff of life to knit me\t
Blew hither: here am I.\t

Now—for a breath I tarry
Nor yet disperse apart—\t
Take my hand quick and tell me,\t
What have you in your heart.\t

Speak now, and I will answer;\t
How shall I help you, say;
Ere to the wind’s twelve quarters\t
I take my endless way.
