I stumbled upon the following passage while reading Lord Dunsany (The Sphinx at Gizeh).
Delilah was younger than she, and Delilah is dust. Time hath loved nothing but this worthless painted face.
What does Delilah is dust mean in this sentence? Does it mean she is worthless? Considering the change in tense (the sentence starts with was and ends with is) I am quite confused.
