Because I do not hope to turn again Because I do not hope Because I do not hope to turn Desiring this man's gift and that man's scope I no longer strive to strive towards such things (Why should the agèd eagle stretch its wings?) Why should I mourn The vanished power of the usual reign?
And tho't that the light-house look't lovely as hope, That star on life's tremulous ocean.
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick.
