IMMORTALITY [OR, VERSE], by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Past ruined ilion helen lives
Last Line: These many summers you and me.
Subject(s): Immortality

PAST ruin'd Ilion Helen lives,
Alcestis rises from the shades;
Verse calls them forth; 'tis verse that gives
Immortal youth to mortal maids.

Soon shall Oblivion's deepening veil
Hide all the peopled hills you see,
The gay, the proud, while lovers hail
These many summers you and me.
