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.
