Hearts in Union

Life leads the thoughtful man on a path of many windings,

Now the course is checked, now it runs straight again

Here winged thoughts may pour freely forth in words,

There the heavy burden of knowledge must be shut away in silence

But when two people are at one in their inmost hearts,

They shatter even the strength of iron or of bronze,

When two people understand each other in their inmost hearts;

Their words are sweet and strong like the fragrance of orchids 💕
