Here you will find the Poem Farewell, Life! My Senses Swim of poet Thomas Hood
Farewell, Life! My senses swim, And the world is growing dim; Thronging shadows cloud the light, Like the advent of the night,? Colder, colder, colder still, Upward steals a vapor chill? Strong the earthy odor grows? I smell the mould above the rose! Welcome, Life! the Spirit strives! Strength returns, and hope revives; Cloudy fears and shapes forlorn Fly like shadows at the morn,? O'er the earth there comes a bloom? Sunny light for sullen gloom, Warm perfume for vapor cold? I smell the rose above the mould!
