A. E. Housman (1859–1936).  A Shropshire Lad.  1896.
 
LVII. You smile upon your friend to-day
 
 
YOU smile upon your friend to-day,
  To-day his ills are over;
You hearken to the lover’s say,
  And happy is the lover.
 
’Tis late to hearken, late to smile,        5
  But better late than never:
I shall have lived a little while
  Before I die for ever.
