It is not, Celia, in our power ...To say how long our love will last; It may be we within this hour ...May lose those joys we now do taste; The Blessed, that immortal be, From change in love are only free.
Then since we mortal lovers are, ...Ask not how long our love will last; But while it does, let us take care ...Each minute be with pleasure past: Were it not madness to deny To live because we're sure to die?
.....To a Lady asking him how long he would love her by Sir George Etherege (1635-91)
