"Passing sistrty . l" So whippers tbe wind
As it treads its trackless course ;
And "passing away," doth the bright rill any,
As it lonpB from its crystal source—
All " passing away," on the Stretun of time,
To oblivion's vale in a fsr,oir olime.
Matter and man, we make no delay.
To eternity's gulf we are passing away.
"Passing away I" Mark the farrowed brow,
And the head with ftm Wery tsar,
And the pale; web cheek, lioW Lhoy plainly speak;
That they 're leaving a world of care.
Yes, passing away. Even beauty's flower •
Is fading fast 'Death the spoiler's power; • •
And fair and frail to their bed of slay,
Adown to the tomb they're, paseingaway:
" Passing away 1" moans the oeeas's wave •
As it breaks oa , tbit beaten
And. the torturetr:tide is left toehlde , •

" Passing away I" for their hour is pith—

The monarch's throne and his sword and crown,
And the pen and the poet's lyre:
