In Beauty May I Walk
English source: Jerome K. Rothenberg

In beauty may I walk,
All day long may I walk,
Through the returning seasons may I walk.
Beautifully will I possess again
Beautifully joyful birds.

On the trail marked with pollen may I walk.
With grasshoppers about my feet may I walk.
With dew about my feet may I walk.
With beauty before me
With beauty behind me
With beauty above me
With beauty all around me.
It is finished in beauty.
