But yield who will to their separation

My object in living is to unite

My avocation and my vocation

As my two eyes make one in sight.


Only where love and need are one

And the work is play for mortal stakes

Is the deed ever really done

For heaven and the future’s sakes.


From “Two Tramps in Mud Time”
