In the dark deep depths of mighty blue ocean
Searching, seething; seeking!
For the precious mystery of the hidden pearl
Under reef and rock you have rummaged
Drawn by the current and swooned by the gyre
Oh! Nacreous Friend!
Why seek pearls when you yourself are an oyster!
What different pearl will you seek in others?
Who else will open their shell to you?
Looking all over for the precious pearl!
Oh, yearning oyster of the mind!
Don’t forget to look inside!
