|Calm as the blind who have not seen the light,|
The deaf who hear no precious voice.
| A forehead calm as fate.|| 2|
As the stars mountain-tops be,
As the pearl, in the depths of the sea,
From the portionless king that wears it.
| Sweet as the songs of homestead birds.|| 4|
| Thick as swallows after storms.|| 5|
