“Respect the souls for who they are,
Respect the minds for what they think;
For a soul’s flame can not be dimmed,
A buoyant mind can never sink.
A soul, honest at heart, extols
Given away pearls that eyes blink;
Regard, you can’t, the one trust you won’t,
For regard ends at your trust’s brink.
Sober trust lasts through drunken fits,
Such a trustful wine I shall drink;
Which eulogizes the fair names
That form the beads of Lover’s link;
For I pour my trust in Love’s flask
Whose music, in my chest, does clink.”
