Narcissus, Narcissus, where is thy boyish bloom, Thy long, slim form that lay beside the pool, And the lips cold smiling to their smiling image cool? Only a strange, indefinite perfume, And a dim white spot in the night when soft airs blow; A flower, bending, bending low Its petals and its yellow heart to where the waters flow; Its scent the winds have borne Through the pearl-gray east to the arms of morn, To faint and to die in the wakening light But of time's swift flight, the dawn, and the noon, and the night, The sun's gold glory, the moon's white mystery, Narcissus, what recketh he?
