A bonnie babe bounced on one’s knee,
A tree rising majestically,
A sailing ship breasting the sea,
The buzz of the bountiful bee,
A swallow aloft, flying free.

But glorious though these things be,
If you were to ask this of me:
“What is the most precious to thee?”
I’d answer: “My friend, but a pee,
performed satisfactorily.”
