Verse 1.27.4

यदा यदा पाकमुपैति नूनं तदा तदेयं रतिमातनोति ।
जराभराऽनल्पनवप्रसूना विजर्जरा कायलता नराणाम् ॥ ४ ॥

yadā yadā pākamupaiti nūnaṃ tadā tadeyaṃ ratimātanoti |
jarābharā'nalpanavaprasūnā vijarjarā kāyalatā narāṇām || 4 ||

As the body gets towards its decline, so much doth death rejoice in it. The body grows lean with grey hairs upon the head, just as a creeper fades away with the flowers upon it.
