I fear that after me, I shall not return to the world
With my intimate friends also I shall not be gathered
This moment that I hold & count as gain
May it be that with my own existence I may not return to this moment


P 597

I fear, since hereafter the world we ne'er shall regain,
Our comrades no more and our messmates we there shall regain;
So come, by to-day let us profit, what while we yet live,
For maybe we never a moment as fair shall regain.

Th 813

I fear that since the world we 'll ne'er regain,
We 'll never gather with our friends again:
While living let us profit by to-day,
We to such moments may no more attain.
