First Line: There's nothing certain, nothing sure
Last Line: Some moments rare and rapture-kist
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Happiness; Joy; Delight


There's nothing certain, nothing sure
Save sorrow. Fragile happiness
Was never fashioned to endure;
For joy repels the perfect claim
And answers to no certain name;
How furtively we scan the mist
Perchance amid the gloom to find
Some moments rare and rapture-kist
