In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

Our beloved store, Urban Outfitters is all about throwing it back and making it the mainstream. They were one of the first to bring back the fanny pack, as well as the mom jeans, the bucket hat and the Calvin Klein logo look. Well now there’s a new return with an epic collab…


Urban Outfitters is working together with Laura Ashley to create a new collection, and it’s going to be the epitome of the ’90s.  Although today the brand is very feminine, it’s thrift inspired past is makes it a trendy collaborator for Urban Outfitters.


Laura Ashley wanted to develop designs and styles that were both brand appropriate, but that worked perfectly with Urban Outfitters.


Their 13 piece collection will available both online and at Urban Outfitters stores, with unique items such as ’90s silhouette floral dresses and modern mini skirts.
