By Friedrich von Bodenstedt (1819–1892)

IN early days methought that all must last;

Then I beheld all changing, dying, fleeting;

But though my soul now grieves for much that’s past,

And changeful fortunes set my heart oft beating,

I yet believe in mind that all will last,

Because the old in new I still am meeting.
