Circumstance

         
      Two children in two neighbor villages
      Playing mad pranks along the heathy leas;
      Two strangers meeting at a festival;
      Two lovers whispering by an orchard wall:
      Two lives bound fast in one with golden ease;
      Two graves grass-green beside a gray church-tower,
      Wash’d with still rains and daisy-blossomed;
      Two children in one hamlet born and bred:
      So runs the round of life from hour to hour.
