The Thursday Poem

Young Woman Reading by a Window - Delphin Enjolras


So We'll Go No More A-roving

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul wears out the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And Love itself have rest.

Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet we'll go no more a-roving
By the light of the moon.

George Gordon, Lord Byron
(22nd January 1788 - 19th April 1824)

from the book: Poem for the Day One
