One day I stalked, when Fate had balked
And things were in a fix,
With brows of gloom and thoughts of the tomb,
On the shores of the river Styx.

"I'm dead," said I; "No more I'll try
This hateful race to win;
So Charon, dear, your boat bring here
And kindly take me in."

Contemptuously he said to me,
With eyes askance the while,
"A healthy ghost! Back to your post,
A potion take for bile."

The advice was good and it has stood
The test of many a friend;
And so for you when you are blue,
The same I'll recommend.
