Gods And Man

Today authors are like God :
They breathe and a masterpiece is born,
The heavy plough soars in winged flight,
Toil is mere game!

The sun casts laurel-shade,
The friendly breeze complies,
Offering twenty years of fame
For one happy day!

From Virgil's crafted lays
Man's inspiration rises still...
He gave twenty years of toil
For one creative day!
