For you there is no greater good than beauty,
In which you have invested your whole life,
Finding in your ecstasy your duty,
The daily grind for an ethereal booty,
Yielding grace for grit and joy for strife.
For you know well the wisdom of your longing,
Into which you pour your hopes and dreams,
Vested in the most profound belonging,
Each breath of which some sacred soul redeems.
