  • For passing where the days, my friend
    And doomed the nights
    When flitting ghostmoths danced
    Round tapers in the moveless air

    And doomed already were
    The radiant dawns
    The odour and the noise of meads
    And all about is night

    One moment now may give us more
    Than fifty years of reason
    Our minds shall drink of every pore
    The spirit of the season

    To her fair works did nature link
    The human souls that through me ran
    And much it grieved my heart to think
    What I can make of man

    You look around on Middle-Earth
    As if she for no purpose bore you
    As if you were her first-born birth
    And none had lived before you

    I sit upon this old grey stone
    And dream my time away
