LEON LOUIS MOREAU CONSTANT CORNEILLE VAN MONTENAEKEN
Belgian poet
(1859 - )

Life is but jest:
  A dream, a doom;
    A gleam, a gloom--
      And then--good rest!
        Life is but play;
          A throb, a tear:
            A sob, a sneer;
              And then--good day.
                [Fr., La vie est vaine:
                  Un peu d'amour,
                    Un peu de haine--
                      Et puis-bonjour!
                        La vie est breve:
                          Un peu d'espoir,
                            Un peu de reve--
                              Et puis--bon soir!]
      - Peu de Chose et Presque Trop (Nought and too Much)
        [Life]
