Think No More, Lad

 by A. E. Housman


Think no more, lad; laugh, be jolly: 

Why should men make haste to die? 

Empty heads and tongues a-talking 

Make the rough road easy walking, 

And the feather pate of folly 

Bears the falling sky. 


Oh, ’tis jesting, dancing, drinking 

Spins the heavy world around. 

If young hearts were not so clever, 

Oh, they would be young for ever: 

Think no more; ’tis only thinking 

Lays lads underground.
