To The Virgins

  1. 1. To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time Robert HerrickGATHER ye rosebuds while ye may, Old time is still a-flying :And this same flower that smiles to-day To-morrow will be dying.The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun, The higher hes a-getting,The sooner will his race be run, And nearer hes to setting.That age is best which is the first, When youth and blood are warmer;But being spent, the worse, and worst Times still succeed the former.Then be not coy, but use your time, And while ye may go marry :For having lost but once your prime You may for ever tarry. 11 Tarry (tar’ ē) v.: Delay.
