Song of a Quiet Life ~

If I can find a loveliness
   in diamonds in the snow
If I can hear a symphony 
   wherever tree-tops blow 
And if I'm dressed in cloth of gold 
   while standing in the sun
Should that not be quite wealth enough 
   for me, or anyone?

If I can find a palace here 

   within my rooms 
If warm spice cake and apple pie
   are rarest of perfumes 
And best of all my husband is 
   a prince in blue jeans 
Am I a fool to be content 
   with simple things like these?
