Ode to men

Who could sail a ship, ride a horse, set a broken bone, plant and harvest a crop, shoot and dress a deer, cook dinner, write a sonnet or a song, solve an equation, repair a machine, teach a child, love a friend, respect and love a woman, play sports, make a just law, explore the unknown, dress plainly and elegantly, defeat oppression with a band of brothers, never say die, die bravely, dance willingly if inexpertly, retain a sense of humour, treat animals kindly, love God and neighbour, speak honestly, and act resourcefully in the face of adversity.

They lived once. They live now.
