Arrow in the wind – John W. Leys

Every success

And every failure

Was a chance taken,

A die cast,

A Rubicon crossed.


An arrow loosed

From the bow,

Eagle eye & steady hand,

Can still miss the mark

Or be grounded

By a strong crosswind,

But an arrow

Left in the quiver

Will never find

The bullseye.
