“Dust if you must, but wouldn't it better / To paint a picture, or write a letter, / Bake a cake, or plant a seed; / Ponder the difference between want and need? / Dust if you must, but there's not much time, / With rivers to swim, and mountains to climb; / Music to hear, and books to read; / Friends to cherish, and life to lead. / Dust if you must, but the world's out there / With the sun in your eyes, / and the wind in your hair; / A flutter of snow, a shower of rain, / This day will not come around again. / Dust if you must, but bear in mind, / Old age will come and it's not kind. / And when you go - and go you must - / You yourself, will make more dust.”
