William Morris. 1834–1896
801. Love is enough
LOVE is enough: though the World be a-waning, 
And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining, 
  Though the sky be too dark for dim eyes to discover 
The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder, 
Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder,         5
  And this day draw a veil over all deeds pass'd over, 
Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter; 
The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter 
  These lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.
