Epitaph
By Alexis Piron (1689–1773)
 
MY journey here below is through;
  Life is indeed a narrow strait.
Once saw I clear, now dimmed the view;
  Once wise was I, but now I’m blate.
I, step by step, have reached the pass        5
  Which may be shunned by fool nor sage,
To go, where know I not, alas!
  Adieu, Piron, and bon voyage!
