Poetry of Kansas

'Tis True

There is no parking ground in life
        Cease to struggle and sit,
        And soon we'll rue it;
We drift unless we ceaselessly strive.
        Once we cast anchor in Life's stream,
        Resistlessly, silently-as in a dream
The current in its strength and pride
        Carries us downward with its tide.
