The glittering stars, the mouldering stone,

Old time that flies each day, And fleeting clouds in silent tone,

Say that they cannot stay : Stars, time, and clouds, keep moving still, And till eternity they will.

The fire, the sea, the earth, the air,

All things o’er which we sway, And all of earth, or foul or fair,

Declare they cannot stay : Their progress man cannot arrest, For they will heed not his behest.

Death's daily power---compulsive call,--

The stones o’er human clay,
Tell, reader, you and I, aye, all,

That we too cannot stay :
For go we soon or later must,
And mingle our foul dust with dust.
