Song of Life
A traveller on a dusty road
Strewed acorns on the lea;
And one took root and sprouted up
And grew into a tree.
Love sought its shade at evening time,
To breathe its early vows;
And age was pleased, in heights of noon,
To bask beneath its boughs.
The doormouse loved its dangling twigs,
The birds sweet music bore-
It stood a glory in its place,
A blessing evermore.
A little spring had lost its way
Amid the grass and fern;
A passing stranger scooped a well
Where weary men might turn.
He walled it in, and hung with care
A ladle on the brink;
He thought not of the deed he did,
But judged that toil might drink.
He passed again; and lo! the well,
By summer never dried,
Had cooled ten thousand parched toungues,
And saved a life beside.
A nameless man amid the crowd
That thronged the daily mart,
Let fall a word of hope and love,
Unstudied, from the heart,
A whisper of the tumult thrown,
A transitory breath,
It raised a brother from the dust,
It saved a soul from death.
O germ! o fount! o word of hope!
O thought at random cast!
Ye were but little at the first,
But mighty at the last.

There was 3 guys stranded in the mountains and they weren't going to be rescued for 3 days.
So they all made a plan that each night one would get the food.
So the first night the 1st guy goes out and comes back with a big deer.
So the guy who was hunting tomorrow ask for advice on how to catch another one,
and the guy said see tracks, follow tracks, BAM!! shot the deer...
So the next night the 2nd guy went out and came back with an even bigger deer
than the 1st guys, and the 3rd guy was amazed so he asked how he could catch one like
that for the next night. And the guy told him see tracks, follow tracks, BAM!! shot the deer...
The next night the 3rd guy went out to get a deer and comes back hours later all beat up and bloody,
so the the other 2 guys ask what happen. And the guy said i seen tracks, followed tracks, BAM!! got hit by train.
