there are things

 

there are things

of which i may not speak

 

dreams

that cannot die

 

thoughts

that make the strong heart weak

 

and a mist

before the eye

 

and the words

of that fatal song

come over me

like a chill:

 

“a boy’s will

is the wind’s will

 

and the thoughts of youth

 

are long

long thoughts”

 

 

( H.W. Longfellow, 1855 )
