Sixty-one still sings of love and dreams.
In her the seed still finds a springtime earth.
Xerophytes and roses equally
Take root in soil that brings sweet blooms to birth.
Yet faith is not as easy as it seems.

One cannot be satisfied to be
No more than need, an end and not a means,
Empty of the will that gives life worth.
