When youth and I lived in ’t together.

5268
    Flowers are lovely; love is flower-like;
Friendship is a sheltering tree;
Oh the joys that came down shower-like,
Of friendship, love, and liberty,
Ere I was old!
          Youth and Age.

    Be that blind bard who on the Chian strand,
By those deep sounds possessed with inward light,
Beheld the Iliad and the Odyssey
Rise to the swelling of the voiceful sea. 2

Doth wash your city of Cologne;

Shall henceforth wash the river Rhine?
          Cologne.

    Strongly it bears us along in swelling and limitless billows;
Nothing before and nothing behind but the sky and the ocean.
          The Homeric Hexameter. (Translated from Schiller.)
