Go from me. Yet I feel that I shall stand Henceforward in thy shadow.
No. VI (Sonnets from the Portuguese (1850))
Pray, pray, thou who also weepest, And the drops will slacken so; Weep, weep and the watch thou keepest, With a quicker count will go. Think, the shadow on the dial For the nature most undone, Marks the passing of the trial, Proves the presence of the sun.Elizabeth Barrett Browning
