Who counts a man's possessions |
when his life is done and spent
but his heirs who, looking puzzled,
wonder where his fortunes went.
The richest of all humans,
unconcerned what he may own,
bows not before material wealth
nor casts condemnation's stone.
Virtue is its own reward...
no rats nor mould find where it's stored.
