Suddenly in the Midst of Friends

Suddenly in the midst of friends,
Of brothers known to me more and more,
And their secrets, histories, tastes, hero-worships,
Schemes, love-affairs, known to me
\; \; \; Suddenly I felt lonely.
Felt like a child in a field with no more games to play
Because I have not a lady
\; \; \; to whom to send my thoughts at that hour
\; \; \; that she might crown my peace.

(c.1895).
