John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:5473
AUTHOR:Thomas Moore (1779–1852)
QUOTATION:Oh, ever thus, from childhood’s hour,
  I ’ve seen my fondest hopes decay;
I never loved a tree or flower
  But ’t was the first to fade away.
I never nurs’d a dear gazelle,
  To glad me with its soft black eye,
But when it came to know me well
  And love me, it was sure to die.
ATTRIBUTION:The Fire-Worshippers.
