Poor child of sorrow, fashioned from the clay,
Of what shall thine unconscious heart be proud
When mourning friends thy lifeless limbs array,
In their last robes, the winding sheet and shroud.

Lose then thy pride, poor offspring of the dust!
With deep humility thy sentence learn
And meekly own that awful sentence just:
From dust thou art, and shall to dust return.
