WHEN EARTH’S LAST

PICTURE IS PAINTED

When earth’s last picture is painted

and the tubes are twisted and dried,

When the oldest colours have faded,

and the youngest critic has died,

We shall rest, and faith, we shall need it – lie down for an aeon or two.

Til the Master of all good workmen

shall put us to work anew.

And only the Master shall praise us,

and only the Master shall blame,

And no one shall work for money,

and no one shall work for fame,

But each for the joy of working,

and each, in his separate star,

Shall draw the Thing as he sees It,

for the God of Things as They Are.

Rudyard Kipling
