Fate & Remembering Hardy

At the library today I found a book of short poems. The first page I opened to had a poem by Thomas Hardy which I had found and was struck by in a huge volume of Hardy's Collected Poems some years ago and was never able to find again.

Hardy's "fate" at work????

Here is the last verse:

"But Time, to make me grieve,
Part steals, lets part abide;
And shakes this fragile frame at eve
With throbbings of noontime."
