   English Poetry II: From Collins to Fitzgerald.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
507. A Lament
 
Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
 
 
O WORLD! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
    Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
    No more—O never more!        5
 
Out of the day and night
A joy has taken flight:
    Fresh spring, and summer, and winter hoar
Move my faint heart with grief, but with delight
    No more—O never more!        10
