1Full many a glorious morning have I seen
2Flatter the mountain-tops with sovereign eye,
3Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
4Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy;
6With ugly rack on his celestial face
9Even so my sun one early morn did shine
10With all-triumphant splendour on my brow;
11But out, alack! he was but one hour mine;
13Yet him for this my love no whit disdaineth;


5] permit: i.e., have I seen the morning permit. Back to Line
7] forlorn: stressed on the first syllable. Back to Line
8] to west: westward. Back to Line
12] region cloud: cloud in the upper air. Back to Line
14] stain: grow dim, be obscured. Back to Line
