Наконец-то я нашла это стихотворение! Несколько лет назад я услышала первые строки из него в "Midsomer Murders", потом еще в нескольких фильмах - и все в разных переводах, и никак не могла докопаться до оригинала и вообще понять, что это такое. И вот оно, внезапно нашлось.

"Antigonish"

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today,
I wish, I wish he'd go away...

When I came home last night at three,
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall,
I couldn't see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don't you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don't slam the door...

Last night I saw upon the stair,
A little man who wasn't there,
He wasn't there again today
Oh, how I wish he'd go away...

William Hughes Mearns (1899)
