• Have you found your life distasteful?
    My life did, and does, smack sweet.
    Was your youth of pleasure wasteful?
    Mine I saved and hold complete.
    Do your joys with age diminish?
    When mine fail me, I'll complain.
    Must in death your daylight finish?
    My sun sets to rise again.
