Work is worship (Poem from my college magazine)

Work is worship,
Says the days that have leaped;
As we sowed,
So we have reaped.

We've reaped love,
From this lovely land;
Ploughed it with perseverance,
Holding each other’s hand.

Reflections of ourselves
In each other we saw;
We saw this place,
From woods to concrete grow.

Our daydreams,
Had many colours;
The happiness we shared,
Like the fragrance from flowers.

New ideas, new ways,
We’ve acquired with zeal;
New techniques, new thoughts,
In this ordeal.

The nook and corner of this place
Reverberate in our heart;
The time we spent together,
And found it difficult to part.

Now, the time has come,
To wave goodbye,
And to embrace each other,
Refreshing the days gone by.

But a promise we’ve made,
At this final frontier we’ve learned,
That, work is worship.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
