Passage

The Solitary Reaper

Behold her, single in the field,

You solitary Highland lass!

Reaping and singing by herself;

Stop here or gently pass!

Alone she cuts and binds the grain,

And sings a melancholy strain

O listen! for the vale profound

Is over flowing with the sound.

No nightingale did ever chant

More welcome notes to weary bands

Of travellers in some shady haunt

Among Arabian sands.

– William Wordsworth

Passage

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,

Life is but an empty dream!

For the soul is dead that slumbers,

And things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest!

And the grave is not its goal;

Dust thou art, to dust returnest,

Was not spoken of the soul.

Not enjoyment and not sorrow,

Is out destined end or way;

But to act, that each tomorrow

Finds us further than today.

In the world’s broad field of battle,

In the bivouac of life,

Be not like dumb, driven cattle!

Be a hero in the strife!

Let us, then, be up and doing,

With a heart for any fate;

Still achieving, still pursuing,

Learn to labour and to wait.

– HW Long Fellow
