  • Backward, turn backward, O Time, in your flight!
    Make me a child again, just for to-night!
    • Rock me to sleep.
  • Backward, flow backward, O tide of the years!
    I am so weary of toil and of tears,—
    Toil without recompense, tears all in vain!
    Take them, and give me my childhood again!
    • Rock me to sleep.
  • Behold, we live through all things,—famine, thirst,
    Bereavement, pain; all grief and misery,
    All woe and sorrow; life inflicts its worst
    On soul and body,—but we can not die,
    Though we be sick and tired and faint and worn,—
    Lo, all things can be borne!
    • Endurance.
