Excerpt: WE are born; we laugh; we weep; // We love; we droop, we die! // Ah! wherefore do we laugh or weep? // Why do we live or die? // Who knows that secret deep? // Alas, not I! // Why doth the violet spring // Unseen by human eye? // Why do the radiant seasons bring // Sweet thoughts that quickly fly? // Why do our fond hearts cling // To things that die? // We toil - through pain and wrong; // We fight - and fly; // We love; we lose; and then, ere long, // Stone-dead we lie. // Of Life! is all thy song // Endure and - die?...
