The four stages of men
Heralding light peep out the Eastern Cor'n;
Smile shooting out his shiny bright face,
Awakening the land that sullen is:
Enter thus, the child in joyous jest;
Exhilarating the higher animals world.
Wandering high, high above the space;
Swirling over the eyrie height,
Unflincingly matured by nature made; he:
In anticipating vindication gest;
Superbly obstinate in soldier stoic
Eventide fortake its youthful lust;
Tediously moves he in supine mood,
Thus, vociferates in every turns:
In wandering thought of past, moan he;
Once youthful, lustful antic.
Now he in pale, shook trembling;
Nurtured by the thousand strained notes,
Slowly down he stoop over the moor:
Awaiting the judgement day in coff'n
When the trumpet shall blow.
