Mimnermus In Church Meaning

[You promise heavens free from strife
Pure truth, and perfect change of will;
But sweet, sweet is this human life
So sweet, I fain would breathe it still;
Your chilly stars I can forgo
This warm kind world is all I know

You say there is no substance here
One great reality above:
Back from that void I shrink in fear
And child-like hide myself in love:
Show me what angels feel. Till then
I cling, a mere weak man, to men

You bid me lift my mean desires
From faltering lips and fitful veins
To sexless souls, ideal quires
Unwearied voices, wordless strains:
My mind with fonder welcome owns
One dear dead friend’s remember’d tones

Forsooth the present we must give
To that which cannot pass away;
All beauteous things for which we live
By laws of time and space decay
But O, the very reason why
I clasp them, is because they die]
