When it is God’s will that the ship go down

Ausiàs March

LXXXII

When it is God’s will that the ship go down,
no port is safe: rigging, anchors, all will break;
and often some small ailment leads to death:
none can foresee how anything will end.
The wise man’s placed no better than the fool,
save that his guesses are more well informed.
Experience and judgement always fail,
duped by Fortune and by what comes to pass.
