Michele Seminara

Man is conceived upon this sullied stage
and like a seedling grows, but then decreases.
He vaunts his youthful sap in brave conceit,
till wasteful time decays his day to night.

Everything holds but a little moment —
even your perfection cannot stay.
So I'll make war with time and as he takes you,
make love, and with my pen engraft you new.
