If souls be made of earthly mould, Let them love gold

July 14, 2016


      O heare betimes, lest thy relenting
           May come too late!
      To purchase heaven for repenting
           Is no hard rate.
      If souls be made of earthly mould,
           Let them love gold;
           If born on high,
      Let them unto their kindred flie:
      For they can never be at rest,
      Till they regain their ancient nest.
      Then silly soul take heed; for earthly joy
      Is but a bubble, and makes thee a boy.
