Vain man! attend, and learn: To know what letters spelt my name Is useless quite to thee; An heap of dust is all I am,
And all that thou shalt be. Go now, that heap of dust explore, Measure its grains, or weigh; Canst thou the title which I bore Distinguish in the clay? What glitt'ring honours, or high trust Once dignified me here, Were characters imprest on dust, Which quickly disappear.
