The Task, Table Talk, and Other Poems of William Cowper By William Cowper:
"All flesh is grass and all its glory fades
Like the fair flower dishevell d in the wind
Riches have wings and grandeur is a dream
The man we celebrate must find a tomb
And we that worship him ignoble graves
Nothing is proof against the general curse
Of vanity that seizes all below
The only amaranthine flower on earth Is virtue
the only lasting treasure truth
But what is truth Twas Pilate's question put
To Truth itself that deign d him no reply"
