Give a man a horse he can ride,
...Give a man a boat he can sail;
And his rank and wealth, his strengh and health,
...On sea nor shore shall fail.
Give a man a pipe he can smoke,
...Give a man a book he can read:
And his home is bright with a calm delight,
...Though the room be poor indeed.
Give a man a girl he can love,
...As I, O my love, love thee;
And his heart is great with the pulse of Fate,
...At home, on land, on sea.
.....Gifts by James Thomson (1834-82)
