A Ghost of Low Replies

On the way to Kew,
By the river old and gray,

Bushy Park, Hampton Hill, Richmond-upon-Thames, TW12

Where in the Long Ago
We laughed and loitered so,

Ferry Lane, Kew, Richmond-upon-Thames, TW9

I met a ghost to-day,
A ghost that told of you –

Osterley Park, Isleworth, Hounslow, TW7

A ghost of low replies
And sweet, inscrutable eyes

Richmond Park, Richmond-upon-Thames, TW10

Coming up from Richmond
As you used to do.

From William Ernest Henley’s On the Way to Kew
