I Had No Time to Hate

PL

First print Life XXII, 22
J poem 478 | Fr poem 763

I had no time to hate, because
The grave would hinder me,
And life was not so ample I
Could finish enmity.

Nor had I time to love; but since
Some industry must be,
The little toil of love, I thought,
Was large enough for me.
