O, gather me the rose, the rose, While yet in flower we find it, For summer smiles, but summer goes, And winter waits behind it! For with the dream foregone, foregone, The deed forborne for ever, The worm, regret, will canker on, And time will turn him never. A wink from Hesper, falling Fast in the wintry sky, Comes through the even blue, Dear, like a word from you… Is it good-bye? Across the miles between us I send you sigh for sigh. Good-Night, sweet friend, good-night: Till life and all take flight, Never good-bye. So well it were to love, my love, And cheat of any laughter The death beneath us and above, The dark before and after. The myrtle and the rose, the rose, The sunshine and the swallow, The dream that comes, the wish that goes, The memories that follow!

Halls grew darker and somehow faded. Grates of windows drowned in black. Every knight, every beautiful lady Knew the tiding: "The Queen's deadly sick." And the king, very silent and frowned, Passed the doors, lost of pages and slaves ... Every word, that by chance cast around, Proved the truth of the closing grave. By the doors of the silent abode I was crying, while pressing the brace ... At the end of the passage remote Someone echoed me, hiding his face. By the doors of the Beautiful Lady I was sobbing, attired in blue ... And the stranger of ashen face sadly Echoed me all my sufferings through. And the king, very silent and frowned, Passed the doors, lost of pages and slaves ... Every word, that by chance cast around, Proved the truth of the closing grave.

Fools may pine, and sots may swill, Cynics gibe, and prophets rail, Moralists may scourge and drill, Preachers prose, and fainthearts quail. Let them whine, or threat, or wail! Till the touch of Circumstance Down to darkness sink the scale, Fate’s a fiddler, Life’s a dance. What if skies be wan and chill? What if winds be harsh and stale? Presently the east will thrill, And the sad and shrunken sail Bellying with a kindly gale, Bear you sunwards, while your chance Sends you back the hopeful hail: - ‘Fate’s a fiddler, Life’s a dance.’ Idle shot or coming bill, Hapless love or broken bail, Gulp it (never chew your pill!) And if Burgundy should fail, Try the humbler pot of ail! Gold’s to find among the shale, Over all is heaven’s expanse. Fate’s a fiddler, Life’s a dance.
