There, in disorder dark and wild,

Are seen the fabrics once so high,
Which mortal vanity had piled

As emblems of Eternity!
And deemed the stately domes, whose forms

Frowned in their majesty sublime,
Would stand unshaken by the storms

That gathered round the brow of Time. Thou desolate and dying year!

Earth's brightest pleasures fade like thiñe; Like evening shadows disappear,

And leave the spirit to repine. The stream of life, that used to pour

Its fresh and sparkling waters onWbile Fate stood watching on the shore,

And numbered all the moments goneWhere hath the morning splendour flown

Which danced upon that crystal stream? Where are the joys to childhood known,

When life is an enchanted dream? Enveloped in the starless night

Which destiny hath overspread Enrolled upon the trackless flight,

Where the dark wing of Time had sped. Oh! thus hath life its eventide

Of sorrow, loneliness, and grief; And thus, divested of its pride,

It withers like the yellow leaf!
Oh! such is life's autumnal bower,

When plundered of its summer bloom!
And such is life's autumnal hour,
Which heralds man unto the tomb.
