Songs That Every Child Should Know 13
It is not while beauty and youth are thy own,
And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear, That the fervor and faith of a soul can be known,
To which time will but make thee more dear. No, the heart that has truly loved never forgets,
But as truly loves on to the close; As the sunflower turns on her god when he sets *
The same look which she turned when he rose.
Tom Moore.
* It is Neltje Blanchan who botanically reminds us, in " Wild Flowers," of the Nature Library, that Moore is only poetically, not scientifically, correct in the last two verses of the last stanza of this song.
