'The difference between the almost right word & the right word is really a large matter--it's the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.'

For love of man and woman like
You'll toil in silent, endless strife
If only they say that they are friends
You'll suffer for them to your end

The bond of bonds it holds you in
'Til you are dying and weighing thin
And common eyes can see your bone
In your side like a burning thorn

You'll swim to bottom of ocean deep
And never will you find sound sleep
So love your mother, and your father
But beware to take it farther
