A Bag of Tools


A Bag Of Tools

Isn't it strange That princes and kings,

And clowns that caper In sawdust rings,

 And common people Like you and me

Are builders for eternity?

Each is given a bag of tools,

A shapeless mass, A book of rules;

And each must make - Ere life is flown -

A stumbling block  Or a steppingstone.

-  R. L. Sharpe
I remember learning that with my Dad, when I was just a child, about 6 or 7.  
I'm not even sure why it popped into my head just now, but I thought I would share it.   Do I seem you now?  Learning great poems in my youth and all?


Of course, I often put the "e" before the "o" when spelling the word "poem".  Sigh.  Well, there goes my "cultured" status.

Here is a link to a video of Maggie Smith reciting the poem.
