Those blind to Beauty oft have brightest eyes,
While those with sharpest ears hear least of Truth
And loudest tongues blare out the lowest lie;
I wonder why, I wonder why?

And you, whose sightless eyes see all of Earth,
Who listen to the song of Beauty all the while
You whisper Truth, have neither proper ear, nor tongue, nor eye;
I wonder why, I wonder why?
