The wind blows out, the bubble dies; The spring entombd in autumn lies; The dew dries up; the star is shot; The flight is pastand man forgot. Attributed to Dr. Henry King. Credited to Francis Beaumont (1600) in a periodical pub. about 1828.
God of our fathers, known of old, Lord of our far-flung battle-line, Beneath whose awful Hand we hold Dominion over palm and pine Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forgetlest we forget! KiplingRecessional Hymn.
The tumult and the shouting dies, The captains and the kings depart; Still stands thine ancient sacrifice, A humble and a contrite heart. Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet Lest we forget,lest we forget. KiplingRecessional Hymn. Perhaps of Biblical inspiration. He smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting. Job. XXXIX. 25.
Forgotten? No, we never do forget: We let the years go; wash them clean with tears, Leave them to bleach out in the open day, Or lock them careful by, like dead friends clothes, Till we shall dare unfold them without pain, But we forget not, never can forget. D. M. MulockA Flower of a Day.
Intrantis medici facies tres esse videntur. Ægrotanti; hominis, Dæmonis, atque Dei. Cum primum accessit medicus dixitque salutem, En Dens aut custos angelus, æger ait. To the sick man the physician when he enters seems to have three faces, those of a man, a devil, a god. When the physician first comes and announces the safety of the patient, then the sick man says: Behold a God or a guardian angel! John OwenWorks.
And have you been to Borderland? Its country lies on either hand Beyond the river I-forget. One crosses by a single stone So narrow one must pass alone, And all about its waters fret The laughing river I-forget. Herman Knickerbocker VieleBorderland.
Go, forget mewhy should sorrow Oer that brow a shadow fling? Go, forget meand to-morrow Brightly smile and sweetly sing. Smilethough I shall not be near thee; Singthough I shall never hear thee. Charles WolfeSong. Go, Forget Me!
