All Mortal Creatures Pass Away


All mortal creatures pass away
Like shadows of a winter's day;
Those ecstasies that we pursue
Which crimson youth once thought it knew,

Will never die, but gently fade
Along that universal stream,
Where stars appear, as they were made,
Reflected in a poet's dream.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
