We all got rhythm, but not much time

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow died on this day in 1882.

In "A Psalm of Life," Longfellow wrote:

"Our hearts, like muffled
Drums, are beating funeral marches
to the grave

Also on this day, in 1603, Elizabeth I, Queen of England, died. Her last words:

"All my possessions for a moment of time."
