May It Be Mine - Poem by John Kendrick Bangs

IF any round about me play,
And dance and sing in glad array,
And laugh and cheer,
May it be mine to see and hear.

If any toil at noble things,
And strive the higher levellings
To reach and win.
May it be mine to join therein.

If any grieve or suffer pain,
And tears fall like the summer rain
From troubled skies,
May it be mine to sympathize!
