I am only merry for an hour or two
Upon a birthday: if this life of ours
Be a good glad thing, why should we make us merry
Because a year of it is gone? but Hope
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come
Whispering 'It will be happier'
- from Act 1, Scene 3 of The Foresters, Robin Hood and Maid Marion by Alfred, Lord Tennyson
