FORTUNE IS LIKE THE MOON, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: But my fate, on some throbbing wheel of god
Last Line: She melts and comes again to nothingness.
Subject(s): Fate; Destiny


BUT my fate, on some throbbing wheel of God,
Always must rise and fall, and change its being:
As the moon's image never two nights long
May in one station rest: out of the dark
The young face grows, still lovelier, still more perfect,
Then at the noblest of her shining, back
She melts and comes again to nothingness.
