This is my favourite piece of poetry that I have read recently. Please leave a reply if you have a piece of poetry that is important in your life.
Isn’t it strange, that princes and kings,
and clowns that caper in sawdust rings,
and even folks like you and me,
are builders for eternity?
To each is given a bag of tools,
a shapeless mass and a Book of Rules;
and each must make ‘ere life has flown,
a stumbling block or a stepping stone.
R.L. Sharpe, “A Bag of Tools,” circa 1809
