Walter Savage Landor - Remain!

REMAIN, ah not in youth alone!
–Tho’ youth, where you are, long will stay–
But when my summer days are gone,
And my autumnal haste away.
‘Can I be always by your side?’
No; but the hours you can, you must,
Nor rise at Death’s approaching stride,
Nor go when dust is gone to dust.
