"The Quotes Garden" – Vol. I – Part I
[ XXVIII ]
The fleeting world
“The madness conquered the cities,
As trumpets, wide, beckon their fame –
Where’s earthly rules, in their committees,
Oh, such abundance there, of lust and shame!..
If one should even miss the mighty voices
Which turn in happy crowds a godly claim!
But where the slaves just dream of having choices,
There is no place to hide a dying flame!..
For such high purpose, there’s no blame;
In wicked hearts the world rejoices! –
Not as a truth, by lie, just seems the same,
Like for what thrives beyond their ditties;
When kingdoms rise and fall, the sky is whirled
By love, or peace, from beggars searching tame,
But death holds claim over this fleeting world;
Isn’t that just a reason more, to watch their duties?!”
