    O, once in each man's life, at least,
    Good luck knocks at his door;
    And wit to seize the flitting guest
    Need never hunger more.
    But while the loitering idler waits
    Good luck beside his fire,
    The bold heart storms at fortune's gates,
    And conquers its desire.

The well-lost life of mine on his grace's cure
By such a day and hour.
