Sic Vita

William Stanley Braithwaite

Heart free, hand free,
 Blue above, brown under,
All the world to me
 Is a place of wonder.
Sun shine, moon shine,
 Stars, and winds a-blowing,
All into this heart of mine
 Flowing, flowing, flowing!
Mind free, step free,
 Days to follow after,
Joys of life sold to me
 For the price of laughter.
Girl's love, man's love,
 Love of work and duty,
Just a will of God's to prove
 Beauty, beauty, beauty!
