Inscription for the Ceiling of a Bedroom

by
 Daily dawns another day;
I must up, to make my way.
Though I dress and drink and eat, Move my fingers and my feet, Learn a little, here and there, Weep and laugh and sweat and swear, Hear a song, or watch a stage, Leave some words upon a page, Claim a foe, or hail a friend- Bed awaits me at the end.
Though I go in pride and strength, I'll come back to bed at length.
Though I walk in blinded woe, Back to bed I'm bound to go.
High my heart, or bowed my head, All my days but lead to bed.
Up, and out, and on; and then Ever back to bed again, Summer, Winter, Spring, and Fall- I'm a fool to rise at all!
