My endless gift
who cannot die,
rain soft upon
failed beauty's lie,
for she must claim
"All ends too soon"
(so sings her sad,
ephemeral tune),
and by such grief
the heart is lost,
so strength gives way
at such a cost.

My endless gift,
do herald here
to whom in joy
brief beauty wear,
and make our path
a longer stretch;
upon our mind
impressions etch;
for wisdom is
thy source and guide
who from the helpless
cannot hide.

Our endless gift,
thou womb of life,
now nourish toward
this end of strife,
for children cry,
contend and beg,
while mercy warms
the fragile egg.
As mercy hides
the tender heart,
provision gives
her infinite part.
