Transcript of The Noble Nature

section 2
the poem
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 in May,
although it fall and die that night-

In small proportions we just beauties see:
and in short measures life may perfect be.

MORAL- no matter how long life is, bringing the values and beauty to others
