CANTO XV.

DON JUAN.

CANTO XV.

1.

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,
An " Oh!" or " Ah!" of joy or misery,

Or a " Ha! ha!" or " Bah!"—a yawn, or " Pooh!"

Of which perhaps the latter is most true.
