Four Brothers

Born a babe onto this unknown world
To each little one a gift of four brothers
To call on in times of duress but
More than that in times of delight

How intelligence can be one’s guide
Friendship a balsam for the mind
Strength to overcome all ails
And ~ Poetry ~ to feed the soul

Who would have though that
Only those four would be enough
To accompany, meditate, enrich
And protect ~ all life long

Never alone, never left
Never disappointed, never ~
Even in times of great sorrow
The four brothers are faithfully here ~
Each today and each tomorrow

Call on them often, for they will appear
Whether to play or chase away all fear
