But princes (like the wondrous Enoch) should be free
From Death's unbounded tyranny.
How happy a thing were a wedding,
And a bedding,
If a man might purchase a wife
For a twelvemonth and a day
Sit the comedy out, and that done, when the Play's at an end, let the Curtain fall down.
There's an experienced rebel, Time,
And in his squadrons Poverty;
There's Age that brings along with him
A terrible artillery:
And if against all these thou keep'st thy crown,
Th'usurper Death will make thee lay it down.
