Enjoy The Scent of Roses


I’m but a man of meager means
A man of simple pleasures
Tho’ deep endowed with eager dreams
I enjoy life’s simple treasures

My days I know are numbered
And so are minutely measured
So that I might remain
A man it seems (and bourne by dreams)

A man of meager means
And simple pleasures
