the poem as
an MP3 file.
|There is beauty at the heart of business
Having to do with the good that comes from goods.
Investing in high hopes yields rich returns,
Resulting in far more than what is earned -
Treasures, tastes, traditions, livelihoods,
Years of pride, of fruitful busyness.
Each business is a long-held dream come true,
In which the risk and labor join to make
Goods that only love would undertake,
Having at conception something new
That could have come from no one else but you.
