- Upon the landscape of his coming life
- A youth high-gifted gazed, and found it fair:
- The heights of work, the floods of praise, were there.
- What friendships, what desires, what love, what
- All things to come. The fanned springtide was rife
- With imminent solstice; and the ardent air
- Had summer sweets and autumn fires to bear;—
- Heart's ease full-pulsed with perfect strength for strife.
- A mist has risen: we see the youth no more:
he see on and strive on? And
- Late-tottering worldworn hence, find
his to be
- The young strong hand which helps us up that shore?
- Or, echoing the No More with Nevermore,
- Must Night be ours and his? We hope: and he?
D. G. Rossetti.
