A Bitty-Ditty on 'Do Not Quitty'

(Above excerpt from Uncle Tom's Cabin)

Oh, take your place and fill its space
With all you have to give
Because to all alike, one life
Is all we have to live

So do not shirk its common work
Or want and wish in vain
Because to all the same, each frame
Will never pass again

…then do not quit; the sum of it
Much more than we can see
For how we choose to use each day
Becomes our legacy
