Percy Bysshe Shelley: Fragment: Sufficient Unto the Day

Fragment: Sufficient Unto the Day

Published by Dr. Garnett, "Relics of Shelley", 1862.

Is not to-day enough? Why do I peer
Into the darkness of the day to come?
Is not to-morrow even as yesterday?
And will the day that follows change thy doom?
Few flowers grow upon thy wintry way;
And who waits for thee in that cheerless home
Whence thou hast fled, whither thou must return
Charged with the load that makes thee faint and mourn?
