That not impossible she,
That shall command my heart and me.

Locked up from mortal eye,
In shady leaves of destiny.

    Days that need borrow
No part of their good morrow
From a fore-spent night of sorrow.

A challenge to his end,
And when it comes, say, Welcome, friend!

Of sweet discourse, whose powers
Can crown old Winter’s head with flowers.

To heaven hath a summer’s day.

Believe me, reader, can say more
Than many a braver marble can,—
