Observe If You Please...

Observe if you please, this lease called life
How it can steal one’s breath-by-breath
Until its loaned laughter-love-strife
Leaves nothing to be done, but Death

Observe if you please, through centuries
How many have not met with this fate
Therefore the wise revere life's lease
And prepare for Death before it is too late
