Faire Daffadills, we weep to see
You haste away so soone
As yet the early-rising Sun
Has not attain’d his Noone.
Until the hasting day
But to the Even-song;
And, having pray’d together, we
Will goe with you along.
We have short time to stay, as You,
We have as short a Spring,
As quick a growth to meet Decay,
As you, or any thing.
As your hours doe, and drie
Like to the Summer’s raine;
Or as the pearles of Mornings dew
Ne’r to be found againe.
