A Nice Irish Poem:
"Come in the evening, come in the morning,
Come when expected, come without warning;
Thousands of welcomes you'll find here before you,
And the oftener you come, the more we'll adore you."
Psalm 103: 15-16
As for man, his days are as grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
Then the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
