OH, heart of hearts, how heartily thou beatest;
Each tender beat beats all the rest. Thou greetest
Me each morn with ever-constant thumping --
'Tis thou, dear heart of hearts, that keeps me humping.

Oh, brow of brows! By thy cold sweat I'm browsing;
Each wipe I give thee gives the children housing;
The sturdy arm each day sets thee to sweating --
Both thee and heart get all the gets I'm getting.

Oh, will of wills! Oh, wilt thou not or will'st
Thou push me on? With grand endeavor fill'st
Thou my soul, the while ambitions blasting
Shake out the deeds that shall be everlasting.
