Jürgen Wagner

The biggest treasure one can find

 

 

What is the biggest treasure, you can find?
A young man left all things behind
He travelled north and searched for gold
He travelled west and people told:

Help us to work and shut your mouth!
He turned away and rode to south
He reached a village with old men
sitting comfortably - and again

Very frustrated he went away
To the east he took his way
In a small hut he felt harmony
A wise man lived there peacefully

He stayed with him throughout three years
One day, he was verging on tears
‘I must go home! ' he told him honestly
‘I want to ask you, answer truly:

What is the biggest treasure one can find? '
He said: ‘Desire nothing in your mind! '
He rode back home and told his wife:
'No greed for gold and no more strife'

I'll live with you in modesty
In work and peace and sympathy
Let us together find the way
And spread the treasure anyway!'
