On the Departure Platform
by Thomas Hardy

We kissed at the barrier; and passing through
She left me, and moment by moment got
Smaller and smaller, until to my view
...She was but a spot;

A wee white spot of muslin fluff
That down the diminishing platform bore
Through hustling crowds of gentle and rough
...To the carriage door.

Under the lamplight's fitful glowers,
Behind dark groups from far and near,
Whose interests were apart from ours,
...She would disappear,

Then show again, till I ceased to see
That flexible form, that nebulous white;
And she who was more than my life to me
...Had vanished quite. . .

We have penned new plans since that fair fond day,
And in season she will appear again--
Perhaps in the same soft white array--
...But never as then!

.....from On the Departure Platform by Thomas Hardy
