ON RECEIVING A POT OF THYME

1 Ah Time! thou best, thou dearest gift of heav'n,
2 The most abus'd of all its blessings giv'n;
3 At last I prize, I honour, and respect,
4 What long I've had, and treated with neglect.
5 Bless'd be the youth who show'd me first my crime,
6 And ever after made me value Time!
