Our opinions are subjected to so many changes, and come and go

in

every
direction in such a manner, tbat contemplating life, as we look behind us,
We seem to see nothing but confusion.

NECKAR.

And what is life ? an hour-glass on the run;
A mist retreating from the morning sun;

A basy bustling still-repeated dream;
Its length ? a mipate's pause, a moment's thought ;

And happiness? a bubble on the stream
That in the act of seizing shrinks to nought.
