The dearest dream, a pristine life,

Such a thought abode a gleam fanciful,

No soul shall see it, no hand can touch

Let a thousand tongue sing of it in praise.

The reality is, here my avarice

Deludes my days equitably

The turmoil born of this dichotomy

Now conveys a banal charity.

Ransack ensuing is indeed offending,

It is ravaging the reality!
