If tones of melancholy shroud you,
Know kingdom of heart is nearby;
If humming bees surround you,
Know garden of flowers is nearby;
If night’s darkness worries you,
Know breaking of dawn is nearby;
If smokes of failure cloud you,
Know way to success is nearby;
If oozing sadness drowns you,
Know fountain of joy is nearby.
