A FAREWELL [TO C.E.G.], by             Poet's Biography
First Line: My fairest child, I have no song to give you
Last Line: One grand, sweet song.
Subject(s): Farewell; Youth; Parting

MY fairest child, I have no song to give you;
No lark could pipe to skies so dull and gray;
Yet, ere we part, one lesson I can leave you
For every day.
Be good, sweet maid, and let who will be clever;
Do noble things, not dream them, all day long:
And so make life, death, and that vast forever
One grand, sweet song.
