William Ernest Henley (Уильям Эрнст Хенли)


* * *


Praise the generous gods for giving
In a world of wrath and strife,
With a little time for living,
Unto all the joy of life.

At whatever source we drink it,
Art or life or faith or wine,
In whatever terms we think it,
It is common and divine.

Praise the high gods, for in giving
This for man, and this alone,
They have made his chance for living
Shine the equal of their own. 



William Ernest Henley's other poems:
  1. A Wink from Hesper
  2. The Ways of Death Are Soothing and Serene
  3. London Types: Bus Driver
  4. In Rotten Row
  5. Before
