Washingtone George


Life


The walks of life can be hard, walk softly
The climbs of life can be steep, climb gently
The runs of life can be fast, run it slowly
The rows of life can be turbulent, row steadily
The steps in life may be unsteady, step on steadily
The sight of life might be blurred, be focused in your sight
The taste of life can be bitter, taste sweet to others
The talks of life can be discouraging, be encouraging in your talks
The contents of life may be harmful, be harmless to its contents
The storms of life can be far reaching, but a calm approach does it all

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
