Ecclesiates

I do

Nothing

extraordinary.

 

All I do has been done.

Will be done.

Thine, and Thine only.

 

Ordinary.

Monotonous.

Laborious.

 

Other men may build great halls.

Other mothers may raise great saints.

 

All I want has been wanted.

All I know has been known.

This fire or that both sear.

 

Thine, and Thine only-

 

The Sum of all longing

and all fears.
