Who is the Potter, pray, and who the Pot?

Yet Ah, that Spring should vanish with the Rose! That Youth's sweet-scented manuscript should close!
The thoughtful soul to solitude retires.
Striking from the Calendar Unborn Tomorrow and dead Yesterday.
One thing at least is certain - This life flies; One thing is certain and the rest is lies; The Flower that once has blown forever dies.
The moving finger writes; and having writ Moves on: not all your piety nor wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a line, Nor all your tears wash out a word of it.
