A Psalm of Life
What the heart of the young man said to the Psalmist
Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time;--
Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.
Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.
From "Voices of the Night"
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
today is is a bowl full of plums & juicy ripe apples...
today ~ *she wears red roses in her hair*
