“Here’s To Life”

~ Mary Wilson

“Life is real! Life is earnest!/ And the grave is not its goal:/ Dust thou art, to dust returnest;/ Was spoken not of the soul./ Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,/ Is our destined end or way;/ But to act, that each to-morrow/ Find us farther than today…/ In the world’s broad field of battle,/ In the bivouac of Life,/ Be not like dumb, driven cattle!/ Be a hero in the strife!…/ Let us, then, be up and doing,/ With a heart for any fate;/ Still achieving, still pursuing,/ Learn to labor and to wait.”

            Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

            “A Psalm of Life”
