Labor leaves us little time to live
As we are given less than we must give,
Being but the undistinguished sea
On which may sail those who catch the wind.
Reason not with sailors, but together
Determine the direction of your weather,
And storm, if storm the wayward watchword be,
Yielding waves that little leave behind.
