शून्यं नगरमाभाति भाति च्छिन्नलतो द्रुमः ।
भात्यनावृष्टिमान्देशो न जराजर्जरं वपुः ॥ १७ ॥

śūnyaṃ nagaramābhāti bhāti cchinnalato drumaḥ |
bhātyanāvṛṣṭimāndeśo na jarājarjaraṃ vapuḥ || 17 ||

Even a deserted city, a leafless tree and parched up land may present a fair aspect, but never does the body look well that is pulled down by hoary age.
