Subject(s): Life; Surprise; Time


We live in little things through all our days,
Until big moments come that with translucent haze
Enveil the small, to stand themselves in livid light,
Alone, erect, supreme, upon the tallest height.
We live in little laughs, we live in little tears,
We have our little joys, we have our little fears,
Until big moments come, and then we rise and stand,
And face our inner God, and grasp Him by the hand,
And live—live life—and touch the farthest crest,
The pinnacle that lifts us high above the rest,
Above the paltry turmoil, above the narrow strife,
When big intensive moments come whereby we measure life.
