The fire which we had yesterday is gone today.

To Gerrit Lansing

There is a fire that burns in us
                          consumes us in equal flame.
To renew the flame, to cause each day
                          To burn with equal ambition.

That is our goal, that is our aim.

              To renew, to please, to stay

              These begot today.
