,et's take the world as some wide scène, Through which, in frail but buoyant boat, Vilh skies now rude and now serene, Together I and you mast float ; ieholding oft, on either shore, Bright spots where we should love to stay, And on we speed - away, away. Should chilling winds and rain come on, We'll raise our awning 'gainst the shower - 3it closer till the morn is gone, And smiling wait a sunnier liour, And if that sunnier hour shuuld shine, We'll know its brightness cannot stay, And happy white 'tis thine and mine Complain not when it fades away. Chus reach we both, at that fall, Down which life's current all must go - Phe dark. the brilliant, destined all To sink into the void below ; ior e'en that hour shall want its charms, If side by side still fond we keep, And calm in each other's arms, Together linked, go down the steep.
