I wish I could remember the first day,
First hour, first moment of your meeting me,
If bright or dim the season,
It might be summer or winter for aught I can say.
So unrecorded did it slip away,
So blind was I to see and foresee,
So dull to mark the budding of my tree
That would not blossom yet for many a May.
If only I could recollect1 it,
Such a day of days!
Let it come and go as traceless as a thaw2 of bygone snow;
It seemed to mean so little, meant so much;
If only now I could reed that touch,
First touch of hand in hand-Did one but know!
He tried to recollect things and drown himself in them.他极力回想过去的事情而沉浸于回忆之中。
She could not recollect being there.她回想不起曾经到过那儿。
The snow is beginning to thaw.雪已开始融化。
The spring thaw caused heavy flooding.春天解冻引起了洪水泛滥。
