  This World Is All A Fleeting Show  

 

This world is all a fleeting show,
    For man's illusion given;
The smiles of joy, the tears of woe,
Deceitful shine, deceitful flow--
    There's nothing true but Heaven!

And false the light on glory's plume,
    As fading hues of even;
And love and hope, and beauty's bloom,
Are blossoms gathered for the tomb--
    There's nothing bright but Heaven!

Poor wanderers of a stormy day,
    From wave to wave we're driven,
And fancy's flash and reason's ray
Serve but to light the troubled way--
    There's nothing calm but Heaven!

       - Sir Thomas Moore
