Light

Oh light, that you should come again
To shine upon this tired head;
Oh life, that drains away but once
And is the same for hope, and dread,

I wish upon a summertime
Of all-too far and long ago
That I could be back then instead,
And not know what I’ve come to know,

For love is like the waves that come:
For that one day, the ocean roars —
But lo, it all recedes, and we
Are left alone on empty

Shores
