Reed (1966) lists this work as one of Kendall's unpublished juvenile poems, which he speculates might have been composed in 1859-1860. The poems are from a MS. once in the possession of Kendall's early mentor, J. Sheridan Moore
, (q.v.). Note that this is not the same work as Kendall's poem 'Passing Away'
, which was published in the Australasian
in September 1868, etc.
