NUMBER:7141
AUTHOR:Robert Browning (1812–1889)
QUOTATION:Have you found your life distasteful?
  My life did, and does, smack sweet.
Was your youth of pleasure wasteful?
  Mine I saved and hold complete.
Do your joys with age diminish?
  When mine fail me, I’ll complain.
Must in death your daylight finish?
  My sun sets to rise again.
ATTRIBUTION:At the “Mermaid.” Stanza 10.
