    Cities And Thrones And Powers

    Cities and Thrones and Powers,
    Stand in Time's eye,
    Almost as long as flowers,
    Which daily die:
    But, as new buds put forth,
    To glad new men,
    Out of the spent and unconsidered Earth, The Cities rise again.

    This season's Daffodil,
    She never hears
    What change, what chance, what chill,
    Cut down last year's:
    But with bold countenance,
    And knowledge small,
    Esteems her seven days' continuance
    To be perpetual.

    So time that is o'er kind,
    To all that be,
    Ordains us e'en as blind,
    As bold as she:
    That in our very death,
    And burial sure,
    Shadow to shadow, well-persuaded, saith, "See how our works endure!"
