In two of life’s three most important events We've no ghost of a choice, you or I; We are born, and our parents don’t ask our Cott« sents— - t Aud, like it or not, we must die. Of the one that takes place 'twixt the last and the first, • Which should never be settled in haste, Which some cynics declare of the three is the worst— Though that is a matter of taste— The option, at any rate, rests in our hands, And his fortune in this each may carry ; Though to die and be born are beyond our com* mands. There’s no law that compels us to many. •This page of my book is reserved for my friends, And hore is recorded the date Of their helpless beginnings, their various ends, And the day that each met with his “ fate.”
