Thomas Urquhart (Томас Эркарт)


Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 36. The different fruits of idlenesse, and vertue in young men


AS singing Grashoppers, a fond Youth revels
In Summer blinks: & starves when tempests rage:
But wise men (Pismire like) enjoy the travels
Of their young yeares, in th'winter of their age:
These by their Providence have wealth in treasure:
While those are pained for their by-gone pleasure.
