|Beauty, more than bitterness Makes the heart break.|
|Can I ever know you Or you know me|
|Can I ever know you Or you know me?|
|I have no riches but my thoughts. Yet these are wealth enough for me.|
|I make the most of all that comes, And the least of all that goes.|
|I make the most of all that comes,|
And the least of all that goes.
|Life has loveliness to sell, All beautiful and splendid things, Blue waves whitened on a cliff, Soaring fire that sways and sings And children's faces looking up Holding wonder like a cup.|
|No one worth possessing Can be quite possessed.|
|No one worth possessing|
Can be quite possessed.
|When I can look life in the eyes, grown calm and very coldly wise, life will have given me the truth, and taken in exchange -- my youth.|
