Do Not I
Do not I, Time, cause nature to augment?
Do not I, Time, cause nature to decay?
Do not I, Time, cause man to be present?
Do not I, Time, take his life away?
Do not I, Time, cause death take his say?
Do not I, Time, pass his youth and age?
Do not I, Time, every thing assuage?
The world is so full of a number of things,
I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Hey Diddle Dinkety
Hey diddle dinkety, poppety, pet.
The merchants of London,
They wear scarlet,
Silk in the collar,
And gold in the hem.
So merrily march the merchant men.
