Flowery fantasy facilitates felicitous festivity The poetry of symmetry springs rare activity Blissful birds sing in scintillating splendour This world enraptures us with visual wonder
The lotus in buoyant bloom causes us delight Entrancing our eyes with the elegance of sight Life devoted to pure pleasure has real treasure We can never gauge it for it is beyond measure We glow with genuine grandeur in lap of Nature As we grow honestly humane in striking stature Moments measured as marvellous monuments Fascinate memory as momentous movements
Ecstasy in enormity is the essence of existence Elegance enlivens ecstasy in edifying eminence Scintillating sensations springing from all mind Sourcing splendid survival of the supreme kind
Let us end all reigning ego to relish lively living Lotus-like liveliness radiating in striking striving Enriches genially gorgeous grandeur in a lustre Magnanimity grows gently rendering life better
