John B. Tabb
Why should I stay? Nor seed nor fruit have I,
But, sprung at once to beauty’s perfect round,
Nor loss nor gain nor change in me is found,—
A life-complete in death-complete to die.
Tabb quotes
He entered; but the mask he wore
Concealed his face from me.
Still, something I had seen before
He brought to memory.
