Stop Button Clutter!
Epicurean
William James Linton (1812-1897), English poet

In Childhood’s unsuspicious hours
The fairies crown’d my head with flowers.


Youth came: I lay at Beauty’s feet;
She smil’d and said my song was sweet.


Then Age, and, Love no longer mine,
My brows I shaded with the vine.


With flowers and love and wine and song,
O Death! life hath not been too long.



from A Victorian Anthology, 1837–1895 (1895)
