A HINT TO CYNICS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Youth, beauty, love, delight
Last Line: That's blended with decay?
Alternate Author Name(s): Smith, Horatio
Subject(s): Beauty; Cynicism; Love; Youth

YOUTH, beauty, love, delight,
All blessings bright and dear,
Like shooting stars by night,
Flash, fall, and disappear.

Let Cynics doubt their worth,
Because they're born to die,
The wiser sons of earth
Will snatch them ere they fly.

Tho' mingled with alloy,
We throw not gold away;
Then why reject the joy
That's blended with decay?
