I know I must waste away...

nd I know, too, I know I must waste away.

Yet for me - listen well -
my delight is the exquisite.
Yes, for me, glitter and sunlight and love
are one society.
So I shall not go creeping away
to live in the dark:
I shall go on living with you.
Loving and loved.
And I shall not mock the good gifts of the muses.
