A description of the experience

Thomas Hardy – My spirit will not haunt the mound

My spirit will not haunt the mound
Above my breast
But travel, memory possessed
To where my tremulous being found
Life largest, best

My phantom footed shape will go
When nightfall greys
Hither and thither along the ways
I and another used to know
In backward days.

And there you’ll find me, if a jot
You still should care
For me, and for my curious air;
If otherwise, then I shall not
For you, be there

The source of the experience

Hardy, Thomas
