WISE - Two Tramps in Mud Time

There's a poem we read in WISE class a few days ago called Two Tramps in Mud Time by Robert Frost, one of my favorite poets of all time. There's a passage in there that sums up what my WISE project is to me:
My object in living is to unite
My avocation and my vocation
As my two eyes make one in sight.
Only where love and need are one,
And the work is play for mortal stakes,
Is the deed ever really done
For Heaven and the future's sakes.
 My hobby of writing music has now become schoolwork. In a greater sense, I hope to one day make my passion of composing into a profession, to "truly do the deed," as Frost put it.
