[from Collected Works, T.E.Brown]
To live within-a caveit is most good.
But, if God make a day,
And some one come, and say
" Lo ! I have gathered faggots in the wood!"
Een let him stay,
And light a fire, and fan a temporal mood!
So sit till morning ! When the light is grown
That he the path can read,
Then bid the man God-speed!
His morning is not thine ; yet must thou own
They have a cheerful warmththose ashes on the stone.
