NOTES:
This poem is sometimes known by the first line in the original Latin in which it was written: Vitae summa brevis spem nos vetat incohare longam.

English writer Robert Sherard bumped into his old friend, Ernest Dowson, penniless in a wine bar. Sherard took the poet home with him, where Dowson died six weeks later.

They are not long, the weeping and the laughter Ernest Dowson (1867-1900), English writer/poet                 reading of Dowson's They are not long
 
They are not long, the weeping and the laughter,
Love and desire and hate:
I think they have no portion in us after
We pass the gate.

They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.



from The Poems of Ernest Dowson (1905)
