When I have Fears That I May Cease to Be


When I have fears that I may cease to be

 Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain,

Before high-pilèd books, in charactery,

 Hold like rich garners the full ripened grain;

When I behold, upon the night’s starred face,

 Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,

And think that I may never live to trace

 Their shadows with the magic hand of chance;

And when I feel, fair creature of an hour,

 That I shall never look upon thee more,

Never have relish in the faery power

 Of unreflecting love—then on the shore

Of the wide world I stand alone, and think

Till love and fame to nothingness do sink.
