All Things To Nothingness Descend - Author Unknown

TITLE UNKNOWN
Master Wace - from his Chronicles of the Norman DukesFound on the Chart of Harold F Umstott (1907-1922)

All things to nothingness descend,
Grow old and die and meet their end,
Man dies, iron rusts, wood goes decayed,
Flowers fall, walls crumble, roses fade …
Nor long shall any name resound
Beyond the grave, unless 't be found
In some clerk's book, it is the pen
Gives immortality to men.
