    My Voice

    by Oscar Wilde

    Within this restless, hurried, modern world
    We took our hearts' full pleasure--You and I,
    And now the white sails of our ship are furled,
    And spent the lading of our argosy.

    Wherefore my cheeks before their time are wan,
    For very weeping is my gladness fled,
    Sorrow has paled my young mouth's vermilion,
    And Ruin draws the curtains of my bed.

    But all this crowded life has been to thee
    No more than lyre, or lute, or subtle spell
    Of viols, or the music of the sea
    That sleeps, a mimic echo, in the shell.
