O Youth (After Christina Rossetti) Poem by Meng Lim Dr

O Youth (After Christina Rossetti)



O youth, do not tarry
The green field is calling
Come and sing and dance
Ere the daylight's fading-

O youth, leave your silent chamber
Answer your heart's bidding
Beauty is your proudest treasure
Your true love is waiting-

O youth, the rose in richest flowering
Ready for the wanton sun's kissing
Dearer than the sweetest dreaming
Do not fail your heart's yearning-

O youth, let your torch be burning
Even in the darkest night appalling
Let your silent lips do the wooing
And claim your prize at every awakening
