1Give me a few more hours to pass
2With the mellow flower of the elm-bough falling,
3And then no more than the lonely grass
4And the birds calling.
5Give me a few more days to keep
6With a little love and a little sorrow,
7And then the dawn in the skies of sleep
8And a clear to-morrow.
9Give me a few more years to fill
10With a little work and a little lending,
11And then the night on a starry hill
12And the road's ending.
