The Seven Ages


                ( With Apologies to the Bard )






1  The infant, mewling and puking............






2  The whining schoolboy






3  The lover.....with a woeful ballad






4  The soldier.........bearded like the pard





5  The justice....with eyes severe, full of wise saws





6  The lean and slippered pantaloon.....with spectacles on nose












7  Sans teeth sans eyes sans everything









And some others
