Variant Title(s): A Lament
Subject(s): Adversity

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more, -- O nevermore!
Out of the day and night
A joy has taken flight:
Fresh spring, and summer, and winter hoar
More my faint heart with grief, but with delight
No more, -- O nevermore!
