"Breath is Enough"  by Robert William Service

I draw sweet air

Deeply and long,

As pure as prayer,

As sweet as song.

And roses wreath,

Heart-joy I know

Is just to breathe.

 

Aye, so I think

By shore or sea,

As deep I drink

Of purity.

This brave machine,

Bare to the buff,

I keep ice-clean,

Breath is enough.

 

From mountain stream

To covert cool

The world, I deem,

Is wonderful;

The great, the small,

The smooth, the rough,

I love it all, --

Breath is enough.
