Life’s Sweet Wages (Poem by Gilbert Parker)

Life’s Sweet Wages
By Gilbert Parker


Who would lie down and close his eyes
While yet the lark sings o’er the dale?
Who would to Love make no replies,
Nor drink the nut-brown ale,
While throbs the pulse, and full’s the purse
And all the world’s for sale?

Though wintry blasts may prove unkind,
When winter’s past we do forget;
Love’s breast in summer-time is kind,
And all’s well while life’s with us yet.
Hey ho, now the lark is mating — 
Life’s sweet wages are in waiting!
