First Line: I fear my power impotent
Last Line: I mark love's fleeting hours pass.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Transience; Impermanence


I fear my power impotent
To hold you leal and full content,
Some hapless look or word perchance
Dispels the glamour of romance;
I tremble lest some stranger fair
Arrest you,—cause you to compare
The meagre charms which I possess
With some resplendent loveliness.

How far removed from Youth's command
The trembling sceptre in my hand,
As miserly within the glass
I mark Love's fleeting hours pass.
