In The Downhill Of Life Analysis

Author: poem of William Collins Type: poem Views: 10

Sponsored Links

In the downhill of life, when I find I'm declining,

May my lot no less fortunate be

Than a snug elbow-chair can afford for reclining,

And a cot that o'erlooks the wide sea;

With an ambling pad-pony to pace o'er the lawn,

While I carol away idle sorrow,

And blithe as the lark that each day hails the dawn

Look forward with hope for tomorrow.

With a porch at my door, both for shelter and shade too,

As the sunshine or rain may prevail;

And a small spot of ground for the use of the spade too,

With a barn for the use of the flail;

A cow for my dairy, a dog for my game,

And a purse when a friend wants to borrow;

I'll envy no Nabob his riches or fame,

Nor what honours may wait him tomorrow.

From the bleak northern blast may my cot be completely

Secured by a neighbouring hill;

And at night may repose steal upon me more sweetly

By the sound of a murmuring rill;

And while peace and plenty I find at my board,

With a heart free from sickness and sorrow,

With my friends may I share what today may afford,

And let them spread the table tomorrow.

And when I at last must throw off this frail cov'ring

Which I've worn for threescore years and ten,

On the brink of the grave I'll not seek to keep hov'ring,

Nor my thread wish to spin o'er again;

But my face in the glass I'll serenely survey,

And with smiles count each wrinkle and furrow;

As this old worn-out stuff, which is threadbare today,

May become everlasting tomorrow.
