    candel Poem: I have loved flowers that fade.





    I have loved flowers that fade,
    Within whose magic tents
    Rich hues have marriage made
    With sweet unmemoried scents:



    A honeymoon delight,
    A joy of love at sight,
    That ages in an hour
    My song be like a flower!.

    I have loved airs that die
    Before their charm is writ
    Along a liquid sky
    Trembling to welcome it.



    Notes, that with pulse of fire
    Proclaim the spirit's desire,
    Then die, and are nowhere
    My song be like an air!.


    Die, song, die like a breath,
    And wither as a bloom;
    Fear not a flowery death,
    Dread not an airy tomb!

    Fly with delight, fly hence!
    'Twas thine love's tender sense
    To feast; now on thy bier
    Beauty shall shed a tear.





    ----Robert Widges
