Eat, Drink and Be Joyous

Stanzas.

Eat, drink and be joyous
Use the time that’s fleeting
Naught shall then annoy us,
In the path we’re beating.
Call the flowers within thy reach,
Every lesson this truth doth teach.

Put not off the present
Own no sorrow blighting,
While the day is pleasant
Eat and drink, delighting.
Rob the present of er’ry ill,
Shadows only the future still.

Hillsdale Whig Standard (Hillsdale, Michigan) Jul 14, 1846
