The Noble Nature

     It is not growing like a tree
     In bulk, doth make man better be;
Or standing long an oak, three hundred year,
To fall a log at last, dry, bald, and sere:
          A lily of a day
          Is fairer far in May,
     Although it fall and die that night--
     It was the plant and flower of Light.
In small proportions we just beauties see;
And in short measures life may perfect be.

                             ~Ben Jonson~
