Common lyrics of All things decay and die

All things decay with time: The forest sees
The growth and down-fall of her aged trees;
That timber tall, which three-scored lusters stood
The proud dictator of the state-like wood,
I mean the sovereign of all plants, the oak,
Droops, dies, and falls without the cleaver’s stroke.
