This is a nice one send to me by a special friend...

" I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;
For Life is a just employer,
And gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for menial's hire,
Only to learn, dismayed
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.
- Jessie B. Rittenhouse
