870. Invocation to Youth
COME then, as ever, like the wind at morning! 
  Joyous, O Youth, in the agèd world renew 
Freshness to feel the eternities around it, 
  Rain, stars and clouds, light and the sacred dew. 
      The strong sun shines above thee:         5
      That strength, that radiance bring! 
      If Winter come to Winter, 
      When shall men hope for Spring?
