Something Vain

Something Vain

 

 

I’ve labored hard at something vain–
and thus invested it with worth.
I’m weary — but I don’t complain.
I’ve labored hard at something vain–
and forced the vacuum to contain
the heavens and the solid earth.
I’ve labored hard at something vain
and thus invested it with worth.

 

 

–Tom Riley
