"Their earth work is ended, to us they have left
The unfinished tasks but begun,
We must pick up the threads and labor with care
Till these unfinished tasks shall be done.
What though we may bungle and tangle the warp
Less skillful than they in the arts,
It is thus we may prove that we reverntly keep
Their mem'ry enshrined in our hearts."
