Let's contend no more, Love, Strive nor weep: All be as before Love, - Only sleep.
I count life just a stuff To try the soul's strength on.

Pippa's Song The year's at the spring, The day's at the morn; Morning's at seven; The hillside's dew-pearl'd; The lark's on the wing; The snail's on the thorn; God's in His heaven- All's right with the world!

How good is man's life, the mere living! how fit to employ All the heart and the soul and the senses forever in joy!
For life, with all it yields of joy and woe, And hope and fear (believe the aged friend), Is just our chance o' the prize of learning love,- How love might be, hath been indeed, and is.
