The Hour-Glass

Consider this small dust, here in the glass,
            By atoms moved :
Could you believe that this the body was
            Of one that loved ;
And in his mistress’ flame playing like a fly,
Was turned to cinders by her eye :
Yes ; and in death, as life unblest,
            To have’t exprest,
Even ashes of lovers find no rest.
