C.D. Warner, et al., comp. The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes. 1917.


By Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)

I STROVE with none, for none was worth my strife;

Nature I loved, and next to Nature, Art;

I warmed both hands before the fire of life,—

It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
