LIFE, a poem

THOU art more ancient than the oldest skies,
But youth forever glances from thine eyes;
     Time wars against thee, and consumes thy fires,
Yet, wingèd, thou from ashes dost arise!
"Life" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine (July 1889), Poems (1898) and Poems (1916) Volume I.
