A Lament

Published by Mrs. Shelley, "Posthumous Poems", 1824.

 1. O world! O life! O time! On whose last steps I climb, Trembling at that where I had stood before; When will return the glory of your prime? No more-Oh, never more!  
 2. Out of the day and night A joy has taken flight; Fresh spring, and summer, and winter hoar, Move my faint heart with grief, but with delight No more-Oh, never more!
