Eternity

"Isn't it strange that princes and kings,
And clowns that caper in sawdust rings,
And common folk like you and me,
Are builders for eternity?

To each is given a bag of tools.
A Shapeless mass, and a book of rules;
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone."
