A BOOK OF AIRS: SONG 38, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: What is a day, what is a year
Last Line: Our souls are in heaven placed.
Subject(s): Time


WHAT is a day, what is a year
Of vain delight and pleasure?
Like to a dream it endless dies,
And from us like a vapour flies:
And this is all the fruit that we find,
Which glory in worldly treasure.

He that will hope for true delight,
With virtue must be graced;
Sweet folly yields a bitter taste,
Which ever will appear at last:
But if we still in virtue delight,
Our souls are in heaven placed.
