On the Night of a Friend’s Wedding
#1
On the Night of a Friend’s Wedding

If ever I am old and all alone,
I shall have killed one grief, at any rate;
For then, thank God, I shall not have to wait
Much longer for the sheaves that I have sown.

The devil only knows what I have done,
But here I am, and here are six or eight
Good friends, who most ingenuously prate
About my songs to such and such a one.

But everything is all askew to-night, -
As if the time were come, or almost come,
For their untenanted mirage of me

To lose itself and crumble out of sight,
Like a tall ship that floats above the foam
A little while, and then breaks utterly.
