  Time And Love  

Time flies. The swift hours hurry by
    And speed us on to untried ways;
New seasons ripen, perish, die,
    And yet love stays.
The old, old love--like sweet, at first,
    At last like bitter wine--
I know not if it blest or curst
    Thy life and mine.

Time flies. In vain our prayers, our tears!
    We cannot tempt him to delays;
Down to the past he bears the years,
    And yet love stays.
Through changing task and varying dream
    We hear the same refrain,
As one can hear a plaintive theme
    Run through each strain.

Time flies. He steals our pulsing youth;
    He robs us of our care-free days;
He takes away our trust and truth:
    And yet love stays.
O Time! take love! When love is vain,
    When all its best joys die--
When only its regrets remain--
    Let love, too, fly.
