Alternate Author Name(s): Barnefield, Richard

Subject(s): Mortality


Man's life is well compared to a feast,
Furnished with choice of all variety,
To it comes Time; and as a bidden guest
He sets him down, in pomp and majesty;
The three-fold Age of man the waiters be.
Then with an earthen voider (made of clay)
Comes Death, and takes the table clean away.
