Original text and translations
- Crabbed age and youth cannot live together:
- Youth is full of [pleasance]1, age is full of care;
- Youth like summer morn, age like winter weather;
- Youth like summer brave, age like winter bare.
- Youth is full of sport, age's breath is short;
- Youth is nimble, age is lame;
- Youth is hot and bold, age is weak and cold;
- Youth is wild, and age is tame.
- Age, I do abhor thee; youth, I do adore thee;
- O, my love, my love is young!
- Age, I do defy thee: O, sweet shepherd, hie thee,
- For methinks thou stay'st too long.
- Lyrics: William Shakespeare (1564-1616), from The Passionate Pilgrim, XII.
