1. Read the poem given below.
BY HENRY W. LONGFELLOW
All are architects of fate. Working in these walls of Time; Some with massive deed and great,
Some with ornaments of rhyme.
For the structure that we raise,
Time is with material filled; Our todays and yesterdays,
Are the blocks with which we build.
Truly shape and fashion these; Leave no yawning gaps between; Think not, because no man sees,
Such things will remain unseen.
Build today, then, strong and sure, With a firm and ample base;
And ascending and secure
Shall tomorrow find its place.
