First Line: If something waits, and you should now
Last Line: That makes our duty pleasure.
Subject(s): Procrastination


IF something waits, and you should now
Begin and go right through it,
Don't think, if 't is put off a day,
You'll not mind to do it.

Waste not moments, no nor words,
In telling what you could do
Some other time; the present is
For doing what you should do.

Don't do right unwillingly,
And stop to plan and measure;
'T is working with the heart and soul,
That makes our duty pleasure.
