Such Love of Life Cannot So Quickly Fade
|Such love of life cannot so quickly fade
Or vanish like a vapor in the wind.
For it was of a lasting pleasure made,
And fierce, fierce joy too bright to turn to shade,
Or vanish from the fields on which it played
Nor can it be by time or space betrayed,
Or vanish as the yearning years invade,
Singing through the silence unafraid,
