ODE, ON TIME. 423 For, as thou dost incessant pass, With sharpend scythe, and circling glass, All nature is thy prey;All must submit to thy awards,A castle is a house of cards, And princes, common clay. No more the priory*s matin hellAwakes the morn, with solemn knell, To call the country round ;In dust her mouldring ruins lie—No more her sculptures strike the eye, And mutes each awful sound. The earth itself, the sea, and sky,The shining worlds that roll on high, All hasten to decay;That great and glorious orb of light,The sun ! must sink in endless night, At the great final day. Then happy they, whom virtue guidesDown lifes tempestous stormy tides! To joys sublime they soar 5Where chilling winters never come,But springs eternal ever bloom, And sorrows are no more,.
