    Have you found your life distasteful?
  My life did, and does, smack sweet.
Was your youth of pleasure wasteful?
  Mine I saved and hold complete.
Do your joys with age diminish?
  When mine fail me, I’ll complain.
Must in death your daylight finish?
  My sun sets to rise again.
          At the “Mermaid.” Stanza 10.

                “With this same key
Shakespeare unlocked his heart” 1 once more!

  Best, to forget!
  Living, we fret;
Dying, we live.
          Dedication to La Saisiaz.

    Can we love but on condition that the thing we love must die?
          La Saisiaz.

    Sky—what a scowl of cloud
  Till, near and far,
Ray on ray split the shroud:
  Splendid, a star!
          The two Poets of Croisic.
7147
            As if true pride
Were not also humble!
          In an Album.
7148
    Wanting is—what?
  Summer redundant,
  Blueness abundant,
    Where is the blot?
          Wanting—is what?
