First Line: Perhaps some evening yet

Subject(s): Poverty

Perhaps some evening yet,
at peace in some old town,
I'll drink my troubles down
and die with less regret, --
time owes me such a debt.

If once my fortunes mend
shall I go breast the North,
or, having gold to spend,
dwell in the vine-clad earth?
Ah, what is thinking worth?

'Tis but an idle sin.
If I became once more
the wanderer of yore,
never would the green inn
unlock for me the door.
