A.1. Read the following poem carefully: 

When I was a young man, I followed the gold,

And never a nugget to gladden my sight- 

But it’s a way, hey! Now I am old, 

The morning were silver, the sunsets were gold. 

             When I was a young man, I followed the sea. 

             Cold, wet and shivering often I’d be; 

             Rocked in the crow’s nest or rolled down below 

             Or sweating my soul out where the Gulf traders go –

             But it’s a way, hey! Now I am old, 

             The oceans were sapphires, the beaches were gold. 

Now I am an old man, I sit in the sun 

Thinking and dreaming of things that I have done, 

Remembering laughter, forgetting the pain 

And I’d go out and do it all over again – 

Way, hey, lift it along!

What good is your life if it isn’t a song?
