To touch the cup with eager lips and taste, not drain it; 
To woo and tempt and court a bliss-and not attain it;
 To fondle and caress a joy, yet hold it lightly,
Lest it become necessity and cling too tightly;
To watch the sun set in the west without regretting;
 To hail its advent in the east-the night forgetting;
 To smother care in happiness and grief in laughter;
 To hold the present close-not questioning hereafter;
 To have enough to share-to know the joy of giving;
 To thrill with all the sweets of life-is living.
