AMOR TRIUMPHANS: 16. THE PAUSE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Trouble has come upon us like a sudden cloud
Last Line: I look out on the world wonderingly, and wait.
Subject(s): Love - Complaints


Trouble has come upon us like a sudden cloud,
A sudden summer cloud with thunder in its wings.
There is an end for us of old familiar things
Now that this desolating voice has spoken aloud.
I look out on the world with blind eyes seeking you
In old familiar places where your feet have been.
I see a white face wavering, and all between
Mist, and I hear the sound of a voice sighing adieu!
Love was immortal yesterday: can love abate
One instant's ardour since to-day was yesterday?
Yesterday I was very sure of love: to-day
I look out on the world wonderingly, and wait.
