Blossoms bud forth into beauty,
And scattering fragrant grandeur all around
Glide but to the tomb.
A humble-bee, lone and languorous,
With thirst for manna-dew
Flutters around the honey-cave.
But alas! the loss wonderer
And the wretched creature
Turns away, his heart in blaze.
Who wins, who loses, who loves, who languishes!
Nothing abides, so to say;
But Nature is just the same.
