When I Have Fears That I May Cease To Be Lyrics
When I have fears that I may cease to be
Before my pen has glean'd my teeming brain,
Before high piled books, in charact'ry,
Hold like rich garners the full-ripen'd grain;

When I behold, upon the night's starr'd face,
Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,
And think that I may never live to trace
Their shadows, with the magic hand of chance;

And when I feel, fair creature of an hour!
That I shall never look upon thee more,
Never have relish in the faery power
Of unreflecting love! -- then on the shore

Of (this) wide world I stand alone, and think
Till Love and Fame (and) nothingness (to) sink.

[Lyrics by John Keats (1795-1821)]
