    SO here confin'd, and but to female Clay,
    ARDELIA's Soul mistook the rightful Way:
    Whilst the soft Breeze of Pleasure's tempting Air
    Made her believe, Felicity was there;
    And basking in the warmth of early Time,
    To vain Amusements dedicate her Prime.
    Ambition next allur'd her tow'ring Eye;
    For Paradice she heard was plac'd on high,
    Then thought, the Court with all its glorious Show
    Was sure above the rest, and Paradice below.
    There plac'd too soon the flaming Sword appear'd,
    Remov'd those Pow'rs, whom justly she rever'd,
    Adher'd too in their Wreck, and in their Ruin shar'd.
    Now by the Wheels inevitable Round,
    With them thrown prostrate to the humble Ground,
    No more she takes (instructed by that Fall)
    For fix'd, or worth her thought, this rolling Ball: {1}
    Tow'rds a more certain Station she aspires,
    Unshaken by Revolts, and owns no less Desires.
    But all in vain are Pray'rs, extatick Thoughts,
    Recover'd Moments, and retracted Faults,
    Retirement, which the World Moroseness calls,
    Abandon'd Pleasures in Monastick {2} Walls:
    These, but at distance, towards that purpose tend,
    The lowly Means to an exalted End;
    Which He must perfect, who allots her Stay,
    And That, accomplish'd, will direct the way.
    Pity her restless Cares, and weary Strife,
    And point some Issue to escaping Life;
    Which so dismiss'd, no Pen or Human Speech
    Th' ineffable Recess can ever teach:
    Th' Expanse, the Light, the Harmony, the Throng,
    The Bride's Attendance, and the Bridal Song,
    The numerous Mansions, and th' immortal Tree,
    No Eye, unpurg'd by Death, must ever see,
    Or Waves which through that wond'rous City roll.
    Rest then content, my too impatient Soul;
    Observe but here the easie Precepts given,
    Then wait with chearful hope, till Heaven be known in Heaven. read more »

    It Ain't The Same

    I used to live for Saturday nights. I'd get all
    spiffed up, go to my favorite watering hole,
    and drink and dance, till they turned off the lights. read more »

    RETIREMENT: An acquired belief that failure is impossible.
    Investments made early-on, makes dividends more profitable.
    Beneath it all, the pride of your labors will show.
    Like a harvest moon or a brightly colored rainbow. read more »
