For the Bed at Kelmscott –

The wind’s on the world

And the night is a-cold,

Thames River

And the Thames runs chill ‘Twixt mead and hill.

But kind and dear

Is the old house here

And my heart is warm ‘Midst winter’s harm.

Rest then and rest,

And think of the best ‘Twixt summer and spring,

When all birds sing In the town of the tree,

And ye in me

And scarce dare move,

Lest earth and its love

Should fade away

Ere the full of the day.

I am old and have seen many things that have been;

Both grief and peace

And wane and increase

No tale I tell Of ill or well,

But this I say:

Night treadeth on the day,

And for worst or best Right good is rest.
