Thomas Hardy

"The Coming Of The End"

        How it came to an end!
The meeting afar from the crowd,
And the love-looks and laughters unpenned,
The parting when much was avowed,
        How it came to an end!

        It came to an end;
Yes, the outgazing over the stream,
With the sun on each serpentine bend,
Or, later, the luring moon-gleam;
        It came to an end.

        It came to an end,
The housebuilding, furnishing, planting,
As if there were ages to spend
In welcoming, feasting, and jaunting;
        It came to an end.

        It came to an end,
That journey of one day a week:
("It always goes on," said a friend,
"Just the same in bright weathers or bleak;")
        But it came to an end.

        "HOW will come to an end
This orbit so smoothly begun,
Unless some convulsion attend?"
I often said. "What will be done
        When it comes to an end?"

        Well, it came to an end
Quite silently—stopped without j*rk;
Better close no prevision could lend;
Working out as One planned it should work
        Ere it came to an end.
