Algernon Charles Swinburne

Here you will find the Poem Change of poet Algernon Charles Swinburne


But now life's face beholden
 Seemed bright as heaven's bare brow
With hope of gifts withholden
 But now.

 From time's full-flowering bough
Each bud spake bloom to embolden
 Love's heart, and seal his vow.

Joy's eyes grew deep with olden
 Dreams, born he wist not how;
Thought's meanest garb was golden;
 But now!
