SO WAGS THE WORLD, by            
First Line: Memory cannot linger long
Last Line: Forever and a day.


MEMORY cannot linger long,
Joy must die the death.
Hope's like a little silver song
Fading in a breath.
So wags the weary world away
Forever and a day.

But love, that sweetest madness,
Leaps and grows in toil and sadness,
Makes unseeing eyes to see,
And heapeth wealth in penury.
so wags the good old world away
Forever and a day.
