September 25

Sorrow hath a double voice,
   Sharp to-day but sweet to-morrow:
Wait in patience, hope, rejoice,
   Tried friends of sorrow.

Pleasure hath a double taste,
   Sweet to-day but sharp to-morrow:
Friends of pleasure, rise in haste,
   Make friends with sorrow.

Pleasure set aside to-day
   Comes again to rule to-morrow:
Welcomed sorrow will not stay,
   Farewell to sorrow!
