While wand'ring in the garden of the world
Too oft one contemplates the thought absurd:
That all our hopes and plans may stand a chance
Upon this ragged path we see unfurled.
Yet our scheming will not change its stance,
As towards us it slowly does advance;
And now, tell me the one-syllable word
That names it, the true lord of circumstance?
