This is the poem for the week of December 29.
A new interlinear poem is available each Monday.
When I have fears that I may cease to be
|When I have fears that I may cease to be|
Before my pen has glean'd my teeming brain,
Before high piled books, in charact'ry,
Hold like rich garners the full-ripen'd grain;
When I behold, upon the night's starr'd face
Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance
And feel 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.
