Arouse its seines and awake,
To see how soon
Life, in all its glories glides away,
And the stern footstep of decay
Come stealing on!
And while we view the rolling tide,
Down which our flowing minutes glide
Away so fast,
Let ivsthe pre-ent hour employ,
And deem e.sch future dream a joy
Let no vain hope deceive the mind,
Xo happier lo;, then, let us find
To-morrow thj'ii to-day.
Our golden dreams of yore were bright
Like them the present shall delight;
Like them decay.
Ourlives like hastening streams must be,

O'er king and kingdom, crown and thorn,
And swallow a;!.

And rich and poor sleep side by side
