Gains


You think of gains and so you talk.
Nothing need be done if they do not
bring you gains of some sort or kind.

I wonder if we aren't in all respect
growing business minded too often!

I wonder who may be left there at all
ready to book losses if gains fall short!

Is there a business where all will gain?
Or we're heading to a time when we will
fearing great losses shall delete our own?

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
