Children of Fate, in the same breathCreated were they, Love and Death.Such fair creations ne'er were seen,Or here below, or in the heaven serene.The first, the source of happiness,The fount whence flows the greatest blissThat in the sea of being e'er is found;The last each sorrow gently lulls,Each harsh decree of Fate annuls.Fair child with beauty crowned,Sweet to behold, not suchAs cowards paint her in their fright,She in young Love's companionshipDoth often take delight,As they o'er mortal paths together fly,Chief comforters of every loyal heart.Nor ever is the heart more wiseThan when Love smites it, nor defiesMore scornfully life's misery,And for no other lordWill it all dangers face so readily.When thou thy aid dost lend,O Love, is courage born, or it revives;And wise in deeds the race of man becomes,And not, as it is prone,In fruitless thought alone.And when first in our being's depthThis passion deep is born,Though happy, we are still forlorn;A languor strange doth o'er us steal;A strange desire of death we feel.I know not why, but such we ever proveThe first effect of true and potent love.It may be, that this wildernessThen first appals our sight;And earth henceforth to us a dreary wasteAppears, without that new, supreme delight,That in our thought is fondly traced;And yet our hearts, foreboding, feel the stormWithin, that it may cause, the misery.We long for rest, we long to flee,Hoping some friendly haven may be foundOf refuge from the fierce desire,That raging, roaring, darkens all around.And when this formidable powerHath his whole soul possessed,And raging care will give his heart no rest,How many times imploredWith most intense desire,Art thou, O Death, by the poor wretch, forlorn!How oft at eve, how oft at dawn,His weary frame upon the couch he throws,Too happy, if he never rose,In hopeless conflict with his pain,Nor e'er beheld the bitter light again!And oft, at sound of funeral bell,And solemn chant, that guidesDeparted souls unto eternal rest,With sighs most ardent from his inmost breast,How hath he envied him,Who with the dead has gone to dwell!The very humblest of his kind,The simple, rustic hind, who knowsNo charm that knowledge gives;The lowliest country lass that lives,Who, at the very thought of death,Doth feel her hair in horror rise,Will calmly face its agonies,Upon the terrors of the tomb will gazeWith fixed, undaunted look,Will o'er the steel and poison brood,In meditative mood,And in her narrow mind,The kindly charm of dying comprehend:So much the discipline of LoveHath unto Death all hearts inclined!Full often when this inward woeSuch pass has reached as mortal strengthNo longer can endure,The feeble body yields at length,To its fierce blows, and timely, then,Benignant Death her friendly power doth show:Or else Love drives her hapless victims so,Alike the simple clown,And tender country lass,That on themselves their desperate hands they lay,And so are borne unto the shades below.The world but laughs at their distress,Whom heaven with peace and length of days doth bless.To fervid, happy, restless soulsMay fate the one or other still concede,Sweet sovereigns, friendly to our race,Whose power, throughout the universe,Such miracles hath wrought,As naught resembles, nor can aught,Save that of Fate itself, exceed.And thou, whom from my earliest years,Still honored I invoke,O lovely Death!
And when first in our being's depth This passion deep is born, warms you and you breathe benigner ether.

Than when Love smites it, nor defies More scornfully life's misery, And for no other lord Will it all dangers face so readily.
