Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)

YEARS, many parti-colour’d years,

Some have crept on, and some have flown

Since first before me fell those tears

I never could see fall alone.

Years, not so many, are to come,

Years not so varied, when from you

One more will fall: when, carried home,

I see it not, nor hear Adieu.
