The Flower of Youth

There is in this Flower –
    The Flower of Youth!

Good for an Hour –
    One Hour of Truth.

Then, Done! with all Laughter,
    Gone! in Disaster,

One Hour thereafter,
    An Hour, forsooth!

Deflowering follows
    An Hour of Truth,

And all those who follow
    In Flowers of Youth.
