Under the Deodars


Rudyard Kipling

And since he cannot spend nor use aright
    The little time here given him in trust,
But wasteth it in weary undelight
    Of foolish toil and trouble, strife and lust,
He naturally clamours to inherit
The Everlasting Future that his merit
    May have full scope—as surely is most just.
