Last stanza of The Small Celandine

William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
 
.. TO 1 be a Prodigal’s Favourite—then, worse truth,
A Miser’s Pensioner—behold our lot!
O Man, that from thy fair and shining youth
Age might but take the things Youth needed not!
 
Note 1. Wordsworth. Last stanza of The Small Celandine. 1804. [back]
