On His Seventy-fifth Birthday

On His Seventy-fifth Birthday
by Walter Savage Landor

Also appeared in McClure's Magazine/Volume 2, March 1894, p. 329.

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.
