Epicurean
 
William James Linton (1812–97)
 
 
IN Childhood’s unsuspicious hours
The fairies crown’d my head with flowers.
 
Youth came: I lay at Beauty’s feet;
She smil’d and said my song was sweet.
 
Then Age, and, Love no longer mine,        5
My brows I shaded with the vine.
 
With flowers and love and wine and song,
O Death! life hath not been too long.
