THERE IS NO LOVING AFTER DEATH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Why hoard your maidenhood? There'll not be found
Last Line: It's dust and ashes, girl, will go to bed.
Alternate Author Name(s): Asklepiades Of Samos


WHY hoard your maidenhood? There'll not be found
A lad to love you, girl, under the ground.
Love's joys are for the quick; but when we're dead
It's dust and ashes, girl, will go to bed.
