Crystal children glitter and glow
Myriad hues from them do flow
Their feet untouched by graveled lane
Success, success, never one blow

How awful pressure keeps them sane
Input-output in perfect brain
Muses a poor soul sitting near
Lucky chaps why envy in vain

Peerless children don’t need a peer
They’re taught to battle hard without fear
Their orbit’s lonely they don’t weep
Life to them isn’t even dear

They see the beauty dark and deep
But they have promises to keep
And miles to go before they sleep
And miles to go before they sleep
