Peace is what we get at last

when all else fails —

lying there in that wooden box

when they’ve hammered in the nails.


but you can have peace

any time you like —

cycling by the river

you alone on your bike.


No! We seek something more,

there’s something we really crave

and it’s probably been that way

since men — women sheltered in the cave.


So what we really seek is harmony,

entirely different from peace

and when we make this great discovery

life’s wonders, never cease.
