This evening I like the lyrics of the song "Black Socks"
Black socks, they never get dirty,The longer you wear them the stronger they get!Sometimes I think I should wash themBut something keeps telling meNo, no, not yet!
"Life isn't measure for the moments you breath, but with the moments that cut your breathing"
Elegy on . . . (a Polish boy) - K.K. Baczyński
They kept you, little son, from dreams like trembling butterflies,
they wove you, little son, in dark red blood two mournful eyes,
they painted landscapes with the yellow stitch of conflagrations,
they decorated all with hangmen’s trees the flowing oceans.
They taught you, little son, to know by heart your land of birth
as you were carving out with tears of iron its many paths.
They reared you in the darkness and fed you on terror’s bread;
you traveled gropingly that shamefulest of human roads.
And then you left, my lovely son, with your black gun at midnight,
and felt the evil prickling in the sound of each new minute.
Before you fell, over the land you raised your hand in blessing.
Was it a bullet killed you, son, or was it your heart bursting?

I memorized this poem when I was in elementary school 40-some years ago. I still remember it. (An elf is a small imaginary or magical person, often with pointed ears.)
The Little Elf
I met a little Elf-man, once,Down where the lilies blow.I asked him why he was so small,And why he didn't grow.
He slightly frowned, and with his eye He looked me through and through."I'm quite as big for me," said he,"As you are big for you."

EVERYTHING IS HIDDEN IN YOU
You’re heavy by the gravityBut light as you wing…You’re alive as your heart beatsAnd young as your eyes can see the distant…You’re good as much as you love
But bad as much as you hate…No matter what colour eyes and eyebrows you have,Your colour is just as she senses…Don’t take your past as a fat profit,You’re near to your last as much as you’ve lived.No matter how long you live,Your life is as long as you love…
You’re happy as much as you can laugh.Don’t worry and know that you’ll laugh as much as you’ve cried.Never think that everything’s over,You’ll be loved as much as you love.The nature values you by the sunriseAnd you’re human as much as you value her.If you’ll deceive someday,Let her believe you as much as she depends on you.As the moonlight keeps the longing for your lover,You’re close to her as much as you long for her.Don’t forget that you’re wet as much as it rainsAnd hot as much as the sun heats you.You’re alone as much as you feel aloneAnd strong as much as you feel strong.You’re beautiful as much as you feel beautiful…
Here is the life!Here is the living!You live as long as you remember thisAnd you feel cold with every breath you take,You are forgotten as fast as you forget her.A flower is beautiful as long as it’s wateredBirds are cute as long as they can singAnd a baby is a baby as long as it cries.And you know as much as you learn; so learn that, too:You are loved as much as you love.
I am one who loves to watch a star.
I am that which cools from afar.
What am I?
Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?Thou art more lovely and more temperate...
