|To-morrow cheats us all. Why dost thou stay,|
And leave undone what should be done to-day?
Beginthe present minutes in thy power;
But still t adjourn, and wait a fitter hour,
Is like the clown, who at some rivers side
Expecting stands, in hopes the running tide
Will all ere long be pastFool! not to know
It still has flowd the same, and will for ever flow.

To the last syllable recorded time;

The way to dusty death.

|Defer not till to-morrow to be wise,|
To-morrows sun to thee may never rise;
Or should to-morrow chance to cheer thy sight
With her enlivening and unlookd for light,
How grateful will appear her dawning rays,
As favours unexpected doubly please.

Than mans presumption on to-morrows dawn!
