James Branch Cabell Quotes: Sad Hours And Glad Hours And All Hours

Sad Hours And Glad Hours, And All Hours, Pass Over;
One Thing Unshaken Stays:
Life, That Hath Death For Spouse, Hath Chance For Lover;
Whereby Decays
Each Thing Save One Thing: - Mid This Strife Diurnal
Of Hourly Change Begot,
Love That Is God-born, Bides As God Eternal,
And Changes Not; -
Nor Means A Tinseled Dream Pursuing Lovers
Find Altered By-and-bye,
When, With Possession, Time Anon Discovers
Trapped Dreams Must Die, -
For He That Visions God, Of Mankind Gathers
One Manlike Trait Alone,
And Reverently Imputes To Him A Father's
Love For His Son.
