  Like Pat, I also had thought in sentences like these:

  "the happiness of the poor is short-lived/ephemeral/fugacious".

 

  Since I have not seen an equivalent in English, I decided not to translate it into English to avoid that somebody could come up with one that´s already used.

   It seems that there´s not any, apart from the ones Breck.   So, Pat might be right.
