WHAT IS LIFE TO YOU?
To the preachers life is a sermon,
To the joker it's a jest:
To the miser life is money.
To the loafer life is rest:
To the lawyer life's a trial.
To the dentist life's a patient
ddiat needs treatment right along.
To the soldier life's a battle.
To the teacher life's a school;
Life's a good thing to the grafter.
It's a failure to the fool.
To the man upon the engine
Life's a long and heavy grade ;
It's a gamble to the gambler,
To the merchant life is trade.
Life's a picture to the artist,
T« i the rascal life's a fraud :
Life, perhaps, is but a burden
To the man beneath the hod;
1 .ife is liivelv to the 1<»ver,
To the player life's a play;
Life may be a load of trouble
To the man upon the dray;
Life is but a long vacation
To the man who loves his work ;
Fife's an everlasting effort
To shun duty to the shirk.
To the earnest Christian worker
Fife's a story ever new ;
Life is what we try to make it—
Brother, what is life to you?
