constant springs hope

not many things are done to meet the grade

whose expectations fly may make the shore

there's always something changing or far more

enticing something you hope won't ever fade

but that will still be left back in the shade

you'll feel yourself deprived or even poor

compared to the most noble elite corps

when all you've got is the plain hoe and spade

not for all this would we be freed from pain

beyond the moment and beyond the day

to see the time come when the law is clear

that sets a certain limit to the ass's reign

permits the weariest a truly even way

and leads us all at last to the brightest air
