You are the clean water

Sparkling from a fresh spring

In a friendly tropical world.

You are the juicy fruit

Of a strong tree with

Deep wide-spread roots.

You are the oasis and clarity

And honest generosity;

A brilliance of purity which

I had forgotten could exist.

Posessing the beauty

Of all that is good about Humanity

Yet so innocent and unassuming

Your precious existence

Could restore hope to

Any Cynic and prove

Idealists arenĀ“t fools.
