Poetry Sunday (04-04-10 edition)

    TO THE VIRGINS, TO MAKE MUCH OF TIME
    by Robert Herrick
    (1591-1674)

    Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
    Old time is still a-flying:
    And this same flower that smiles to-day
    To-morrow will be dying.

    The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
    The higher he's a-getting,
    The sooner will his race be run,
    And nearer he's to setting.

    That age is best which is the first,
    When youth and blood are warmer;
    But being spent, the worse, and worst
    Times still succeed the former.

    Then be not coy, but use your time,
    And while ye may go marry:
    For having lost but once your prime
    You may for ever tarry.
