Wilfrid Scawen Blunt Quotes

    Written At Florence

    O WORLD, in very truth thou art too young;
    When wilt thou learn to wear the garb of age?
    World, with thy covering of yellow flowers,
    Hast thou forgot what generations sprung
    Out of thy loins and loved thee and are gone?
    Hast thou no place in all their heritage
    Where thou dost only weep, that I may come
    Nor fear the mockery of thy yellow flowers?
       O world, in very truth thou art too young.
