Ah, it is ever thus%/ On all earth's dearest things decay is writ:/ Only to wither blooms the fairest flower:/ The bow is bent in beauty but to fade;/ And the summer-cloud, like a glimpse of Heaven,/ O'ershadows us, only to flee away/ Into its azure home, and leave the heart/ To muse upon its loveliness and mourn. [P. 8.]
