CANTOS XV. AND XVI.
Dost thou think, because thou art virtuous, there shall be no more
PRINTED FOR JOHN AND H. L. HUNT,
TAVISTOCK STREET, COVENT GARDEN.
Ah! What should follow slips from my reflection
Whatever follows ne'ertheless may be
As apropos of hope or retrospection,
As though the lurking thought had follow'd free.
All present life is but an Interjection,
Or a " Ha! ha!" or " Bah!"—a yawn, or " Pooh!"
Of which perhaps the latter is most true.
