I am not young enough to know everything.
The sea is calm to-night.
The tide is full, the moon lies fair
Upon the straits;--
Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
Sophocles long ago
Heard it on the Aegaean, and it brought
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
The day in his hotness,
The strife with the palm;
The night in her silence,
The stars in their calm . . .
In the moonlight the shepherds,
Soft lull'd by the rills,
Lie wrapt in their blankets
Asleep on the hills.
'Tis not to see the world
As from a height, with rapt prophetic eyes,
What is it to grow old?
Is it to lose the glory of the form,
Strew on her roses, roses,
And never a spray of yew!
In quiet she reposes;
Ah, would that I did too!
