More from Robert Browning

The moment eternal — just that and no more —
When ecstasy’s utmost we clutch at the core
While cheeks burn, arms open, eyes shut and lips meet!

A minute’s success pays the failure of years.

"Apollo and the Fates" (1887)

What Youth deemed crystal,
Age finds out was dew.

"Jochanan Hakkadosh" (1883)

Womanliness means only motherhood;
All love begins and ends there.

The Inn Album (1875)

Who hears music feels his solitude
Peopled at once.

Balaustion's Adventure (1871)
