  • They are not long, the weeping and the laughter,

    Love and desire and hate:

    I think they have no portion in us after

    We pass the gate.

    They are not long, the days of wine and roses:

    Out of a misty dream

    Our path emerges for a while, then closes

    Within a dream.

    Ernest Dowson (1900) Vitae summa brevis spem nos vetat incohare longam
