Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John


What matters though love's dream shall pass,
Since from the throbbing hour-glass
One golden-throated moment prest
Its attared incense to my breast.

Since I have known the purple gleam
That lifts above me—can I deem
The way unlighted—when I go
Encircled by love's afterglow?
