They come they go the years
Immixed with woes tnd cheers
A monotone repeated
And summer is summer
Cold winter is winter
Changeless cycles repeated
My birth, my growth, my death
And what not else on this earth
A monotone repeated



They Come They Go The Years Immixed with woes and cheers A monotone repeated
And summer is summer Cold winter is winterChangeless cycles repeated
My birth, my groth, my deathAnd what not else on this earth A monotone repeated
