THE RACE OF MAN.

(By Homer.)

Like leaves on trees the race of man is found,

Now green in youth,

now withering on the ground;

Another race the following spring supplies;

They fall successive, and successive rise:

So generations in their course decay;

So flourish these when those are past away.

Pope, Iliad, vi.
