    When I have fears that I may cease to be
    Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain,
    Before high-piled books, in charact'ry,
    Hold like rich garners the full-ripened grain;
    When I behold upon the night's starred face
    Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,
    And think that I may never live to trace
    Their shadows, with the magic hand of chance;
    And when I feel, fair creature of an hour,
    That I shall never look upon thee more,
    Never have relish in the faery power
    Of unreflecting love! -then on the shore
    Of the wide world I stand alone, and think,
    Till Love and Fame to nothingness do sink.
