All your renown is like the summer flower that blooms and dies;
because the sunny glow which brings it forth, soon slays with

What is the end of Fame? 'tis but to fill
A certain portion of uncertain paper:

And bards burn what they call their "midnight taper,"
To have, when the original is dust,
A name, a wretched picture, and worse bust.

Those bold insurancers of deathless fame,
Supply their little feeble aids in vain.
