IF THERE WAS
If there was time unbounded to measure infinitude,
How short the fleeting moment.
If there was light enough to see forever,
How attenuate the shadow that darkens each small step.
If there was wisdom plenty to share for all the world,
How sage the trifling endeavour of one.
If there was unceasing joy never to be surpassed,
How jubilant the most trivial of life’s delights.
If there was peace serene to last forever more,
How sweet and safe the simple play of children.
If there was love in bounteous measure to quench humanity,
How swift the smallest kindness given unrestrained.
