Or by dusk’s light the loss of all wealth,

Coming quite aware or all by stealth,

How would you spend today?

Your plans so great, plunged into dark night,

Never again to have hope or light,

How would you spend today?

 

Or – if tomorrow you were blind or lame,

And you were not ever to be the same,

Or – if tomorrow morning never came,

How would you spend today?             – eab, 2/10/05 (revised 3/3)
