Loss And Gain

When I compare
What I have lost with what I have
gained,
What I have missed with what
attained,
Little room do i find for pride.

I am a ware
How many days have been idly
spent;
How like an arrow the good intent
Has fallen short or been turned
aside.

But who shall dare
To measure loss and gain in this
wise?
Defeat may be victory in disguise;
The lowest ebb is the turn of the
tide.
