More from Robert Browning

Peopled at once.

We loved, sir — used to meet:
How sad and bad and mad it was —
But then, how it was sweet!

Fail I alone, in words and deeds?
Why, all men strive and who succeeds?

"The Last Ride Together" (1859)

The lie was dead
And damned, and truth stood up instead.

Bells and Pomegranates No. III: Dramatic Lyrics: Count Gismond (1842)

Deeds let escape are never to be done.

"Sordello" (1840)
