Often I think of the beautiful town
That is seated by the sea;
Often in thought go up and down
The pleasant streets of that dear old town,
And my youth comes back to me.

Is haunting my memory still:
"A boy's will is the wind's will,
And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts."
from My Lost Youth, Longfellow
