Life sings with an extraordinary passion,
Intent on being all one can afford.
For those who let their love their fortune fashion,
Eden is indeed a just reward.

So might we live in paradise unending
If only we would see the salient sea,
Needing need with honesty unbending,
Grace to love so long and well that we,
Singing each to each, might simply be.
