Today the birds sing
With all their morning glory,
And for once, I'm withdrawn
From life's bitter story.
I head into life's light
Today, so good-hearted and anew
And finally no cruel soul, or
Ugly spirit will ever take its cue.
Protected well by my smile
And my friendly face,
Not even the coldest remark
Could ever take this warming place.
And though, maybe tomorrow
This place I'll never see,
But, at least, I have something
This sweet, faint memory.
