By Robert Herrick (1591–1674)


O YEARS! and age! farewell:
        Behold, I go
        Where I do know
Infinity to dwell.
And these mine eyes shall see        5
        All times, how they
        Are lost i’ th’ sea
Of vast eternity.
Where never moon shall sway
        The stars; but she        10
        And night shall be
Drown’d in one endless day.
