Subject(s): Aging


OFT am I by the Women told,
Poor Anacreon, thou grow'st old.
Look how thy Hairs are falling all;
Poor Anacreon, how they fall!
Whether I grow old or no,
By th' effects I do not know.
This I know without being told,
'Tis time to Live if I grow Old.
'Tis time short pleasures now to take,
Of little Life the best to make,
And manage wisely the last stake.
