|Concerning Wealth. I.|
(Greek poet, fl. 8th cent.? B.C.)
|WHO, or by open force, or secret stealth,|
|Or perjured wiles, amasses wealth,|
|(Such many are, whom thirst of gain betrays)|
|The gods, all seeing, shall oercloud his days;|
|His wife, his children, and his friends shall die,|| 5|
|And, like a dream, his ill-got riches fly.|
