Volume III. Sorrow and Consolation.  1904.
 
IV. Comfort and Cheer
Unchanging
Friedrich von Bodenstedt (1819–1892)
 
Anonymous translation from the German

IN early days methought that all must last;
  Then I beheld all changing, dying, fleeting;
But though my soul now grieves for much that ’s past,
  And changeful fortunes set my heart oft beating,
I yet believe in mind that all will last,        5
  Because the old in new I still am meeting.
