Who is the best


Cease fire and cease frowns
The sharpest mouth wears no crown
He who thinks he’s best
Point to me your seed grown
Bring forth she who’s fairest
Let her mirror speak the truth

The best be man
Who speaks none but truth
He is his brother’s keeper
And the seedlings, he keeps from wither
He stands with valour
And dances to wisdom

Be her the fairest
One with one heart
That beats of a thousand
Her eyes speak light
To the darkness of a dozen
She is a humble pride.

When thou meet them
Tell them they are the best.
