Estrangement

Frederick George Scott 1861 (Montreal, Quebec) – 1944 (Quebec City, Quebec)

DO you remember how, one autumn night,
  We sat upon the rocks and watched the sea
In dreamlike silence, while the moonlight fell
  On you and me?
How, as we lingered musing, side by side,
5
  A cold, white mist crept down and hid the sea
And dimmed the moon, and how the air grew chill
  Round you and me?
The mist and chill of that drear autumn night,
  When we sat silent looking on the sea,
10
I often think has never passed away
  From you and me.

Frederick George Scott

Frederick George Scott was a Canadian poet and author, known as the Poet of the Laurentians. He is sometimes associated with Canada's Confederation Poets, a group that included Charles G. D. Roberts, Bliss Carman, Archibald Lampman, and Duncan Campbell Scott. Scott published 13 books of Christian and patriotic poetry. Scott was a British imperialist who wrote many hymns to the British Empire—eulogizing his country's roles in the Boer Wars and World War I. Many of his poems use the natural world symbolically to convey deeper spiritual meaning. Frederick George Scott was the father of poet F. R. Scott. more…
