DELIGHT, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Fleeter than a tone scarce born
Last Line: Sunbeam of delight.
Alternate Author Name(s): Lake, Claude
Subject(s): Happiness; Joy; Delight

FLEETER than a tone scarce born
That melts away,
Sweeter than a dream of morn
That shuns the day,
Swifter than a rainbow fading out of sight:
Sucked away as dewdrops by the burning light;
Or like birds or blossoms, takest thou thy flight --
Sunbeam of delight.
