Adieu, Adieu, Adieu


They say, old is gold,
Really, old, hardly easily sold;
Dusk lacks glamour of dawn,
Long age never stands up to brawn;
Luster of freshness is innately born,
Nascent force perforce is youth’s preserve,
And progressions only young age deserve;
Old is cold, excessively in hold,
It tatters life in melancholic mould,
And awaits support in youngers’ fold;
Therefore, love, I surrender love,
Bid you, dissociate from me now,
Lest you caught in old age spirals,
And lose life’s sheen within its whorls;
Adieu, adieu, adieu.

You’re freshly blossoming flower,
Fragrant, hallowed, in lustrous sunshine,
In the meridian of youth, glowing abright;
Thousands of miles of joyous passage
Lies ahead to walk, awaits for you –
How I infect you with old age shade?
You’re my most prized possession,
My joy, my light, jewel, my pride –
How I pluck you to walk shadowy path,
I’m condemned to passage on my course,
Only to keep me in comfort and warmth?
Though eager, you’re, to be near, and tend;
No, my love, life, too precious to waste
In thoughtless sacrifice on sentiment’s altar;
Adieu, adieu, adieu.

Setting Sun and full Moon, algate apart,
They blend on new moon to wane the Moon –
So are we now, to great despair of us;
My heights are over, on descent now,
Nothing of worth, I can gift you now;
I extracted aplenty from the mine of life,
But nothing is left to share with you,
But for travails of care for lowly days;
I’m no pleasure or pride of anybody now;
No, you shouldn’t follow, keep own course,
Parting from you, now, my gift for you;
Live life like Queen, and make me proud;
It’s the bliss I await at the sunset ahead,
And bid you to give that precious gift;
Adieu, adieu, adieu.

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
