On the trail marked with pollen may I walk.
With grasshoppers about my feet may I walk.
With dew about my feet may I walk.
With beauty before me may I walk.
With beauty behind me may I walk.

With beauty above me may I walk.
With beauty all around me may I walk.

In old age wandering on a trail of beauty,
        lively, may I walk.
 

In old age wandering on a trail of beauty,
        living again, may I walk.

It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.
