A Frankish Lord advised his son to seek
Such aim that is always pleasant ne'er bleak.
If lion's temper is to lamb revealed,
It will entirely make its blood congealed.
Much good, if regal point remains in heart,
In dominating men sword plays no part.
Pour the Self in culture's acid strong,
When it becomes soft, mould it as you long.
On this Elexir's efficacy you can count,
To heap of dust can change a mighty mount!
