Can Do

Man can do his best at a task
With what he has at hand.
More of him no one should ask,
Nor any God demand.

An undertaking well begun
May not end in glory.
Life lived well under the sun,
Now that's a different story.

You may not reach an apogee,
Nor fall you to some nadir.
But make you no apology;
The judgment may come later.

A race that dreams about the stars
May never leave this planet.
Mayhap your child will walk on Mars,
Or see her face in granite.

Poor William's Whimsical Words:

Verily, it is better to give all you have than to receive more than you can handle.
