Projects go ever on:
Building rock and building tree,
Hills and woods where no sun has shone,
And streams that reach the edge - no sea;
Over snow by flour strewn,
Or grass-mat cornfield in steamy June;
From deepest night to highest noon,
From brightest day to darkest moon -
Projects go ever on.
The plastic and metal soldiers tread,
Uniforms to be painted on,
Blue and green and white and red...
