In The States
by [?]

With half a heart I wander here
As from an age gone by
A brother – yet though young in years.
An elder brother, I.

You speak another tongue than mine,
Though both were English born.
I towards the night of time decline,
You mount into the morn.

Youth shall grow great and strong and free,
But age must still decay:
To-morrow for the States – for me,
England and Yesterday.
