When I consider everything that grows


When I consider everything that grows

holds in perfection but a little moment,

that this huge stage presenteth nought but shows

whereon the stars in secret influence comment;

When I perceive that men as plants increase,

cheered and check’d even by the selfsame sky,

vaunt in their youthful sap, at height decrease,

and wear their brave state out of memory;

Then the conceit of this inconstant stay

sets you most rich in youth before my sight,

where wasteful Time debateth with Decay

to change your day of youth to sullied night;

And all in war with Time for love of you,

as he takes from you, I engraft you new.

William Shakespeare. England (1564-1616)
