Daughter of Time, the hypocrite Days, Muffled and dumb like barefoot dervishes, And marching single in an endless file, Bring diadems and fagots in their hands; To each they offer gifts after his will, Bread, kingdom, stars, and sky that holds them all; I, in my pleached garden watched the pomp Forgot my morning wishes, hastily Took a few herbs and apples, and the Day Turned and departed silent. I too late Under her solemn fillet saw the scorn.

The day are ever divine as to the first Aryans. They are of the least pretension, and of the greatest capacity of anything that exists. They come and go like muffled and veiled figures sent from a distant friendly party; but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away.

Cease not to learn until thou cease to live; Think that day lost wherein thou draw'st no letter, To make thyself learneder, wiser, better. [Fr., Jusqu'au cercuil (mon fils) vueilles apprendre, Et tien perdu le jour qui s'est passe, Si tu n'y as quelque chose ammasse, Pour plus scavant et plus sage te rendre.]

Sweet day, so cool, so calm, so bright, The bridal of the earth and sky, The dew shall weep thy fall to-night; For thou must die.
