SONG (4), by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Why should we with fancied cares
Last Line: Let us quaff the cup of joy.
Alternate Author Name(s): Browne, Felicia Dorothea
Subject(s): Carpe Diem

WHY should we with fancied cares,
Shade the sun-shine hope bestows;
When, alas! our being bears
But too many real woes ?

Time is cheating, life is fleeting,
Why then half its bliss destroy!
Friendship blessing, hope caressings
Let us quaff the cup of joy.
