Twenty-two worries about Earth,
Wondering what one small will might do.
Each inherits everything at birth,
Not able to untangle me from you.
There is a song so sweet that none can hear;
Yet could one hear it, one could never bear.

Take heart, then, for the whistler in Perth
Will serenade the piper in Peru.
One wish, one thought, one word is everywhere.
