The Dialectic of Work and Play

Play and work, work and play,
I bask in all life's joys today.
Work and play, play and work,
Else all my joys in shadows lurk.

Like sun and moon, or moon and sun,
Seasons come, and seasons go.
The world says to change it up;
Our Father tells us all to fast.

Then fast from joy, however great,
To find in it another day.
Learn to rest, and learn to pray,
And work again at morning's gate.
