Of all the wealth under the sun certainly
Nothing can match good health definitely
It is health and health alone undoubtedly
That describes the living quite eloquently.
Certain simple rules define healthy living
Abstinence, plain food and honest earning
Coupled with exercise and sound sleeping
Keep all medication as a far away thing.
Even though the above things are foremost
More central than these, I count the most
Is love of the Creator through which alone
Serenity of mind, so vital, one can attain.
