- Even as a child, of sorrow that we give
- The dead, but little in his heart can find,
- Since without need of thought to his clear mind
- Their turn it is to die and his to live:—
- Even so the winged New Love smiles to receive
- Along his eddying plumes the auroral wind,
- Nor, forward glorying, casts one look behind
- Where night-wrack shrouds the Old Love fugitive.
- There is a change in every hour's recall,
10And the last cowslip in the fields we see
- On the same day with the first corn-poppy.
- Alas for hourly change! Alas for all
- The loves that from his hand proud Youth lets fall,
- Even as the beads of a told rosary!
Dante G. Rossetti
