Part 40 of A.E. Housman's 'A Shropshire Lad'
Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?
That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.
This verse is recited at the end of Nicolas Roeg's stunning 1971 masterpiece "Walkabout".
