Say not, I live!"
     Unless the morning's trumpet brings
A shock of glory to your soul,
     Unless the ecstasy that sings
Through rushing worlds and insects' wings,
     Sends you upspringing to your goal,
Glad of the need for toil and strife,
     Eager to grapple hands with Life --
Say not, "I live!"

-- Angela Morgan
