7863
    From too much love of living,
  From hope and fear set free,
We thank with brief thanksgiving
  Whatever gods may be
That no man lives forever,
That dead men rise up never;
That even the weariest river
  Winds somewhere safe to sea.
          The Garden of Proserpine.
7864
    For in the days we know not of
    Did fate begin
Weaving the web of days that wove
    Your doom.
          Faustine.
7865
    I remember the way we parted,
  The day and the way we met;
You hoped we were both broken-hearted
  And knew we should both forget.
          An Interlude.
7866
    And the best and the worst of this is
  That neither is most to blame,
If you have forgotten my kisses
  And I have forgotten your name.
          An Interlude.
7867
    Change lays not her hand upon truth.
          Dedication.
7868
    Stately, kindly, lordly friend
      Condescend
Here to sit by me.
          To a Cat.
7869
    Not with dreams, but with blood and with iron,
  Shall a nation be moulded at last.
          A Word for the Country.
7870
    Who knows but on their sleep may rise
Such light as never heaven let through
To lighten earth from Paradise?
          A Baby’s Death.
