Life springs its lessons upon you (poem)

No names, nor their works shall endure,

the quest for remembrance is itself impure,

for our sojourn here is all too brief,

acceptance of transience awards greater relief,

how comforting to the soul it is to know

that though with pride we overflow,

human thoughts be they loving or wise,

are but drops in an ocean of immeasurable size.
