Change

But now life’s face beholden
Seemed bright as heaven’s bare brow
With hope of gifts withholden
But now.

From time’s full-flowering bough
Each bud spake bloom to embolden
Love’s heart, and seal his vow.

Joy’s eyes grew deep with olden
Dreams, born he wist not how;
Thought’s meanest garb was golden;
But now!
