Major Bellenden's Song

And what though winter will pinch severe 
Through locks of grey and a cloak that's old? 
Yet keep up thy heart, bold cavalier, 
For a cup of sack shall fence the cold.

For time will rust the brightest blade,
And years will break the strongest bow;
Was ever wight so starkly made,
But time and years would overthrow?
