Time Flies.
II. “Laughing Life Cries at the Feast”
By Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
 
March 3

LAUGHING Life cries at the feast,—
Craving Death cries at the door,—
“Fish, or fowl or fatted beast?”—
“Come with me, thy feast is o’er.”—
 
“Wreathe the violets”—“Watch them fade.”—        5
“I am sunlight.”—“I am shade:
I am the sun-burying west.”—
“I am pleasure.”—“I am rest:
Come with me, for I am best.”
