With mental acuity to be aware
Forgone the beauty of your looks
A daring life ahead you fare
But nothing you could find in books.
Blush I will abide, active and aware
Even if life seems long and bare.
At last inside my ears a golden call
To know no darkness forever to fall
Your thoughts so active every day
To plow and crop amongst the fields
And fall and rise in every way
In daylight you won't always yield.
Long and hard your thoughts arise
And play a part within my eyes.
