A psalm of life | 人生呵，无非是虚梦一场！
A psalm of life by Herry Wadsworth LongfellowTell me not in mournful numbers,Life is but an empty dream!For the soul is dead that slumbersAnd things are not what they seem.Life is real! Life is earnest!And the grave is not its goal;Dust thou art , to dust returnest,Was not spoken of the soul.Not enjoyment , and not sorrow,Is our destined and our way;Find us farther than to-day.Art is long , and time is fleeting.And our hearts , though stout and brave.Still , like muffled drums , are beatingFuneral marches to the grave。In the world's broad field of battle,Be not like dumb,driven cattle!Trust no future.howe'er pleasant!Let the dead Past bury its dead!Act,act in the living Present!Heart within,and God O'erhead!Lives of great men all remind usWe can make our lives sublime,And departing,leave behind usFootprints on the sands of time;Footprints that perhaps another,Sailing o'er life solemn main,A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,Seeing,shall take heart again,Let us,then,be up and doing,With a heart for any fate;Still achieving,still pursuingLearn to labour and to wait.
