ON TIME

by John Milton

 

Fly envious Timetill thou run out thy race

Call on the lazy leaden-stepping hours

Whose speed is but the heavy Plummets pace;

And glut thy self with what thy womb devours

Which is no more then what is false and vain

And meerly mortal dross;

So little is our loss

So little is thy gain.

For when as each thing bad thou hast entomb'd

And last of allthy greedy self consum'd

Then long Eternity shall greet our bliss

With an individual kiss;

And Joy shall overtake us as a flood

When every thing that is sincerely good

And perfectly divine

With Truthand Peaceand Love shall ever shine

About the supreme Throne

Of himt' whose happy-making sight alone

When once our heav'nly-guided soul shall clime

Then all this Earthy grosnes quit

Attir'd with Starswe shall for ever sit

Triumphing over Deathand Chanceand thee O Time. - -

THE END
