A Little Work

By George Du Maurier

A little work, a little play
To keeps us going – and so, good-day!
A little warmth, a little light
Of love’s bestowing – and so, good-night!
A little fun, to match the sorrow
Of each day’s growing – and so, good-morrow!
A little trust that when we die
We reap our sowing! And so – good-bye!
