DEATH'S JEST-BOOK: THE SLIGHT AND DEGENERATE NATURE OF MAN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Pitiful post-diluvians! From whose hearts
Last Line: Grow o'er the secrets cut into their core.
Subject(s): Mankind; Human Race


Pitiful post-diluvians! from whose hearts
The print of passions by the tide of hours
Is washed away for ever and for ever,
As lions' footmark on the ocean sands;
While we, Adam's coevals, carry in us
The words indelible of buried feelings,
Like the millennial trees, whose hoary barks
Grow o'er the secrets cut into their core.
