Fortune is a patchwork. What it gives
Is always linked to what it gives away.
For one makes choices one cannot rescind
That shape the miracles of every day.
Yet chance, too, has its uninvited say.

One sets one's sails according to the wind,
Never less than hopeful as one lives
Each moment with the choice one leaves behind.
