With beauty before me I walk
With beauty behind me I walk
With beauty above me and about me, I walk,

It is finished in beauty

THE WORLD OF CHANGE.

Oh ! trust not, cling not, to the hope

Of constancy below ;

Earth’s fragile blossoms smile and droop.

Her waters ebb and flow :

Yon flow’ret withers as it springs.

Yon bird is on the range ;

Aye, even in life’s meanest things,

This is a World of Change.

Poetry (1834)

Abdy, Maria Smith, d. 1867

"Ships in harbour"
