The Character

To run after material fame
Counted not rich sensitive game;
Among wealth, sex and love affair,
Character is above all arbiter.

As adorn ornament each bridal's limb,
An artist make alive clumsy-wart-stone;
Company bear trophy by aggressive troops
Oblige character graceful at distress grown;

The character die seldom minus bloom,
Yet en-lights personality fade in gloom;
Usually left little paid proper care,
Although always seen inclined sincere;

Certain place customary said temple
Where almighty's statue noted install
Estimated body deserving only when;
Thermal of character ne'er fall;

Effort need to build the character
Honesty and endurance are weapon mere;
By effacement total thought rankle
And block pulse hide egotism perennial;

Good name lost can regain later
But character pleases rare if blot;
A richest jewel survive human tread,
Turn soul ill, fret, spiritless on rot.
