Around the year with Ella Wheeler Wilcox.For life was made for loving, and love alone repays,
As passing years are proving, for all of Time's sad ways.
There lies a sting in pleasure,
And fame gives shallow measure,
And wealth is but a phantom that mocks the restless days--
For life was made for loving, and only loving pays.
