Rookie (1st September 1959 / Edinburgh)

12 Lines


For every When? There is a Why?

For every push, there is a pull

For every truth there is a lie

For every fall there is a fool

For every Where? There is a How?

For every Heaven, there is a Hell

For every moment there is a now

For every nose there is a smell

For every foe there is a friend

For every smile there are many tears

For every start there is an end

When every day we face our fears
