EDWARD IH. WEED,

In the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the United States for the Soutlhern
District of New York.


J l.IUs BIEN,
Lithorlrapher. N. Y.


\ Mm. M1. FRANKLIN.
Printer. N. Y

























NCO in Persia reigned a King,

Who upon his signet-ring

Graved a maxim true and wise,

Which, if held before his eyes,

Gave him counsel, at a glance,

Fit for every change or chance:

Solemn words, and these are they:

" Even this shall pass away !"


I:%
cP~ c



























EAINS of Camels through the sand

Brought him gems from Samarcand;

Fleets of galleys through the seas

Brought him pearls to match with these.

But he counted not as gain

Treasures of the mine or main.

"What is wealth?" the King would say,

"'Even this shall pass away.'"




















ir


IGHTING on a furious field,
Once a javelin pierced his shield,
Soldiers with a loud lament
Bore him bleeding to his tent.
Groaning from his tortured side,
"Pain is hard to bear," he cried:
" But, with patience day by day,
'Even this shall pass away. "

N the revels of his court,

At the zenith of the sport,

When the palms of all his guests

Burned with clapping at his jests,

He, amid his figs and wine,

Cried, "0 loving friends of mine!

Pleasure comes, but not to stay:

'Even this shall pass away.'"

ADL fairest ever seen


Chose he for his bride and queen.


SCouched upon the marriage-bed,


SWhispering to his soul, he said,


S "Though a bridegroom never pressed


I Dearer bosom to his breast,


Mortal flesh must come to clay:


'Even this shall pass away.'"

,- OWERING in the public square,

I Twenty cubits in the air,

*I^ ^f Rose his statue carved in stone.

r IIThen the king, disguised, unknown,

r' Stood before his sculptured name,

Musing meekly, "What is fame?

Fame is but a slow decay:

j /' Even this shall pass away.'"

(I






























? TRUCK with palsy, sere and old,

SWaiting at the Gates of Gold,

S Spake he with his dying breath,

S"Life is done, but what is Death?"

Then, in answer to the king,

i Fell a sunbeam on his ring,

Showing by a heavenly ray-

"Even this shall pass away."
