Thirty-six knows well by now his goal.
He follows in his head his untold story.
Intent on excellence, he'd like to hone
Recurring insights into polished stone,
Turning wisdom into lasting beauty.
Yet not yet has he refined his role.

Sunlight gilding his intended duty,
In quiet ecstasy he walks alone,
Xeroxing the thoughts that move his soul.
