Remember Christopher Columbus

The Things That Haven't Been Done Before                       
     by Edward Guest
The things that haven't been done before, 
Those are the things to try.
Columbus dreamed of an unknown shore
At the rim of the far-flung sky;
And his heart was bold and his faith was strong
As he ventured in dangers new,
And he paid no heed to the jeering throng
Or the fears of the doubting crew. 
The many will follow the beaten track 
With guideposts on the way; They live, and have lived for ages back,
With a chart for every day.
Some one has told them it's safe to go
the road he has traveled o'er;
And all that they ever strive to know
Are the things that were known before. 
A few strike out, without map or chart, 
Where never a man has been;
From the beaten paths they draw apart
To see what no man has seen.
There are deeds they hunger alone to do;
Though battered and bruised and sore,
They blaze the path for the many, who
Do nothing not done before. 
The things that haven't been done before 
Are the tasks worth while to-day;
you one of the flock that follows, or
Are you one that shall lead the way?
Are you one of the timid souls that quail
At the jeers of a doubting crew?
Or dare you, whether you win or fail,
Strike out for a goal that's new?
