Do not let the ease by nature blind
The eyes that sear a pathway throughout the night,
And do not let the complex cloud the mind
To love revealing unobstructed sight?
Do not let the glamour of the swan
Obscure the heart with beauty and desire,
And let the first impression thus be gone
To glean the duck that flies beneath the wire.
Do not let the shallow sight supplant
The struggle to be more than simple clay
And do not let the hard way disenchant
For sometimes harder is the better way.
