Work by Henry Van Dyke

Let me but do my work from day to day,
In field or forest, at the desk or loom,
In roaring market-place or tranquil room;

Let me but find it in my heart to say,
When vagrant wishes beckon me astray,

"This is my work; my blessing, not my doom;
"Of all who live, I am the one by whom
"This work can best be done in the right way."

Then shall I see it not too great, nor small,
To suit my spirit and to prove my powers;

Then shall I cheerful greet the labouring hours,
And cheerful turn, when the long shadows fall

At eventide, to play and love and rest,
Because I know for me my work is best.

OMG, I'd go to town on those guys. And that first guy is the exotic dancer Lucsious from Atlanta.
