A PSALM OF LIFE – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)

    
        In the bivouac of Life, 
    Be not like dumb, driven cattle ! 
        Be a hero in the strife !

    Lives of great men all remind us 
        We can make our lives sublime, 
    And, departing, leave behind us 
        Footprints on the sands of time ;

    Let us, then, be up and doing, 

        With a heart for any fate ; 
    Still achieving, still pursuing, 
        Learn to labor and to wait.
