EVEN THIS WILL PASS AWAY

This is beautiful story that the poet Theodore Tilton has very emotively expressed in the stanza's ...






EVEN THIS WILL PASS AWAY

Once in Persia reigned a king, Who upon a signet ring Carved a maxim strange and wise, When held before his eyes,
Gave him counsel at a glance,
Fit for every change and chance:
Solemn words and these were they: 'EVEN THIS WILL PASS AWAY."
