QUEST, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The phantom happiness I sought
Last Line: Descend—my search is o'er.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Happiness; Joy; Delight

The phantom happiness I sought
O'er every crag and moor;
I paused at every postern gate,
And knocked at every door;

In vain I searched the land and sea,
E'en to the inmost core,
The curtains of eternal night
Descend—my search is o'er.
