I HEARD Youth crying in the night:
"Gone is my former world-delight;
For there is naught my feet may stay;
The morn suffuses into day,
It dare not stand a moment still
But must the world with light fulfil.
More evanescent than the rose,
My sudden rainbow comes and goes
Plunging bright ends across the sky—
Yea, I am Youth because I die!"
