‘Even such is Time…’

…from the quills of the dead white poets

 Sir Walter Ralegh (1552 – 1618)

Even such is Time, that takes in trust

Our youth, our joys, our all we have,

And pays us but with earth and dust;

Who, in the dark and silent grave,

When we have wandered all our ways,

Shuts up the story of our days;

But from this earth, this grave, this dust,

My God shall raise me up, I trust.
