GENIUS AT PLAY, WISDOM AT WORK
By Michael Armstrong
Based on a quote from Gelett Burgess
The blood of genius
loves to play,
for play's own sake any day;
and whether it uses its own skill,
on thrones or conquest, swords to kill,
or on pens or gold or even fame,
the thing to do is to play the game.
The spirit of wisdom loves to share,
for love's own sake anywhere;
and whether it works its greater art
with time or might, deeds of heart,
or with words or worth or just a dream,
the thing it does, is reign supreme.
