CHAPTER V
PRIVATE LETTERS 1848-1857

To Mrs Graves-Sawle.
Dec. 1856.
DEAR ROSE,
Did I ever send you a bit of poetry brginning
" My little kid (1)
If I forbid
Your access to my tender trees."

If I did it is possible you may have thought it worth keeping. I can find no copy and I quite forget in what periodical or other paper it was printed. I sadly
want it. . .
Affectionately yrs.,
W. S. LANDOR.

THE LAST GIFT.(2)
Jan. 12, 1857.
The shadows deepen round me ; take
I will not say my last adieu,
But, this faint verse ; and for my sake
Keep the last line I trace for you.
The years that lightly touch your head
Nor steal away nor change one hair,
Press upon mine with heavy tread
And leave but barren laurels there.

1 The beginning of a poem afterwards printed in "Dry Sticks," for which Landor seems now to have been collecting material. There is also a Latin version of the piece.
2 From the original MS. in Lady Graves-Sawle's album. The verses were printed in " Dry Sticks."
