I am not dead, but sleeping here;
My end you know, my grave you see,
Prepare yourself to follow me.
Original verse on rear.
See from earth the fragrant lily rise!
It springs, it buds,
It flourished and dies.
So this fair flower
Scarce Blossomed for one day,
Short was the bloom,
And speedy the decay.
