—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)
What The Heart of the Young Man Said to the Psalmist.
Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is real! Life is earnest!
Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,
Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
In the world’s broad field of battle,
Trust no Future, howe’er pleasant!
Lives of great men all remind us
Footprints, that perhaps another,
Let us, then, be up and doing,
—Medusa, celebrating those footprints in the sand ~
