But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You’re gonna have to serve somebody …”

“O snow, in thy soft grave
Sad flow’rs the winter brave;
O heart, so sooth and save,
as does the snow.
The snow must melt, must go,
Fast, fast as water flow.
Not thus, my soul, O sow
Thy gifts to fade like snow.”
(C.A. Elgar in The snow)
