What ye have been ye still shall be, When we are dust the dust among, O yellow flowers!
Time goes, you say? Ah, no! alas, time stays, we go.
Love comes unseen; we only see it go.
Not as ours the books of old - Things that steam can stamp and fold; Not as ours the books of yore - Rows of type, and nothing more.
I intended an Ode, And it turned to a Sonnet.
