A Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay on light, memory, moon, and trees

Should at that moment the full moon
Step forth upon the hill,
And memories hard to bear at noon,
By moonlight harder still,
Form in the shadows of the trees,---
Things that you could not spare
And live, or so you thought, yet these
All gone, and you still there,
A man no longer what he was,
Not yet the thing he planned...

Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892 - 1950)
