..So Much That’s Still To Do

So much that’s still to do; the Sun
Has yet to cross the sky.
The rivers to the sea still run;
The dew is yet to dry.

So much that’s still to do; the book
Is started but unread.
The stars will come and beg me look;
The snail has miles to tread.

How can it be, when much remains,
Unfinished to the eye,
The curtain falls, and come the chains
Of Death, and one must die?
