I’d love to find an ideal friend in –
A magic dragon! How I would honor it,
For indeed it would be magical!
How else, but by magic could it be ideal
While within this imperfect world?
An ideal friendship withstands eternity;
It cannot come and go as possessions do.
Who ever heard of having a dragon?
You can’t have one, nor lose one.
So, among them an ideal friend I find!
Proud possession precedes painful loss.
The very things we cannot really tame
Nor claim, we most surely may proclaim
Our ideal friends. The better part
Of friends is this wildness set apart,
Free from our selfish selves.
In the nature of the world not ours to bend,
There lives the magic, the dragon, my friend!
The dragon, being magically ideal and free,
Is beautiful! Beauty is -
This thing worthier than desire.
We desire that which we have already,
Diminished only by this lack:
The awareness of already having it!
Besides, the best is not something had,
But rather an ideal to be found.
So, we desire out of the weakness,
Ignorance, whereas out of this strength,
The ability to find, we pursue beauty.
The weaklings among us burn the forests
For the vain desire for the abundance
Already here in every human heart,
Found in our beautiful, hidden dragons.
