SWEET flowers, the year with speedy pomp adorn;
Infirm and old, I linger for your sight;
Quick, with your sheen make gay the opening morn;
Quick, with your scent embalm the closing night.

To-morrow ye might bloom too late for me;
Age finds a rock concealed 'neath every wave.
The glorious sunshine that shall bid you be
Will shine, perchance to-morrow, on my grave.
