CHAPTER V
PRIVATE LETTERS 1848-1857

never see another verse of mine on any occasion whatsoever. It is right and proper that my last verse should be on you, and when your company is gone, and you are kept in the house by a rainy or snowy or windy day, you may find them toward the close of my volume, beginning
" Few the years," &c.
There are very many things which I wrote early in life and never thought of publishing. My reason for doing so now is to be found in the preface. Do not accuse me of vanity in sending you Forster's note. If I ever was vain, you made me so, and will never cure me. ... Kindest regards to every soul at Restormel.
Ever yours,
W. S. L.

To RosE.(1)
Few the years that wait for me Rounding my centenary ; But my latest wish shall be Health and happiness to thee.
Years in age are apt to grow Crabbed ; all the rest may go Ere another fall of snow Fill the furrow on my brow.

1 These verses were printed in " Dry Sticks."

CHAPTER V
PRIVATE LETTERS 1848-1857

We shall see thy face again
When despotic winter's chain
Clanks upon the pallid plain.
Let him rave ; he raves in vain.

Not a floweret fears the cold
In thy presence : we are told
That the bravest men enrol'd
In Fame's record were less bold.
