Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967).  Picture-Show.  1920.

28. Vision


I LOVE all things that pass: their briefness is 
Music that fades on transient silences. 
Winds, birds, and glittering leaves that flare and fall— 
They fling delight across the world; they call 
To rhythmic-flashing limbs that rove and race...         5
  A moment in the dawn for Youth’s lit face; 
  A moment’s passion, closing on the cry— 
  ‘O Beauty, born of lovely things that die!’
