Pledge not that sparkling bowl
    To Memory, to Love, to Me;
I lay no spell upon thy soul
    Mid revelry:
But when thy wreath is dead,
    And the dancers have left the hall,
When the song and the lights are fled,
    Oh, then recall
One, whose fate is also gloom,
    Withered and darkened and lone;
But whose heart was all light and bloom
    When first thine own!
