Sing a song of sweet but silent beauty
In which a pensive soul might be sustained.
Xerophytes prefer to be arraigned,
Tough and spare, before the bar of duty.
Yet there are those whose wills are more restrained.

For such, there are no goals to be attained.
Open to the wind, nor wise nor witty,
Unmoved by wealth yet wounded well by pity,
Rich in harmony, they live unchained.
