A little Poetree for Gary Vee

October 23, 2017

 

 

 

 I'd rather risk gamely
        And lose for my trying
    Than grind around tamely
        --A cog in the mill.


    I'd rather fail greatly
        With courage undying
    Than plod on sedately
        With never a thrill!

    The game's in the playing
        And, losing or winning,
    The fun's in the essaying
        Your bravest and best,
    In taking your chances
        While fate's wheel is spinning
    And backing your fancies
        With nerve and with zest!

 

    Let stodgy folk censure
        and timid folk quaver,
    But life sans adventure
        Is weary to bear,
    The dangers we're sharing
        Give living its savour
    I'd rather die daring
        Than never to dare!
