Some-Work for Immortality

406

Some-Work for Immortality-
The Chiefer part, for Time-
He-Compensates-immediately-
The former-Checks-on Fame-

Slow Gold-but Everlasting-
The Bullion of Today-
Contrasted with the Currency
Of Immortality-

A Beggar-Here and There-
Is gifted to discern
Beyond the Broker's insight-
One's-Money-One's-the Mine-
