Fuess and Stearns, comps.  The Little Book of Society Verse.  1922.
 
Florine
By Thomas Campbell
 
COULD I bring back lost youth again
  And be what I have been,
I’d court you in a gallant strain,
  My young and fair Florine.
 
But mine’s the chilling age that chides        5
  Devoted rapture’s glow,
And Love—that conquers all besides—
  Finds Time a conquering foe.
 
Farewell! we’re severed by our fate
  As far as night from noon;        10
You came into the world too late,
  And I depart so soon.
