First Line: Man is a watch, wound up at first, but never
Last Line: And mans pulse stopt, all passions sleep in peace.
Subject(s): Mortality; Watches

Man is a Watch, wound up at first, but never
Wound up again: Once down, He's down for ever.
The watch once downe, all motions then do cease;
And Mans Pulse stopt, All Passions sleep in Peace.
