'Let him have time to see his friends his foes, (989)

And merry fools to mock at him resort; (990)

Let him have time to mark how slow time goes (991)

In time of sorrow, and how swift and short (992)

His time of folly and his time of sport;
And ever let his unrecalling crime (994)

Have time to wail th' abusing of his time.
