    St George Tucker Poem
    St George Tucker Poem
    Among papers of Nathan White, presumably written in his hand (though not sure). Poem by St. George Tucker of Virginia:

    Days of my youth! Ye have glided away;
    Locks of my youth! Ye are frosted and gray;
    Eyes of my youth! Your keen sight is no more;
    Cheeks of my youth! Ye are furrowed all o'er;
    Strength of my youth! All your vigor is gone;
    Thoughts of my youth! Your gay visions are flown!
    Days of my youth, I wish not your recall;
    Locks of my youth, I'm content ye shall fall;
    Eyes of my youth, ye much evil have seen;
    Cheeks of my youth, bathed in tears have ye been;
    Thoughts of my youth, ye have led me astray;
    Strength of my youth; why lament your decay!
    Days of my age! Ye will shortly be past;
    Pains of my age, but a while can ye last;
    Joys of my age, in true wisdom delight;
    Eyes of my age, be religion your light;
    Thoughts of my age, dread ye not the cold sod;
    Hopes of my age, be ye fixed on your God!
