We Will Forswear The Contests Of The World

we will forswear the contests of the world
since only God is gold
and singing is its own reward

did poets feel this in a distant age
and so their names not come down to us
then let them be praised beyond

those that strove
forever the laurel in their scope
forever the contest and the one to beat

forever the sleep without dreaming
