The Cappello Reale Story
May you lead life as best you are able,
ever ready for what is placed in your lap and on your table.
May you speak truths and never fables,
and share your spoils found by luck and from your toils.
Faced with injustice or adversity may you not retreat or recoil,
but stand and rock the cradle,
looking for a place that is fair and stable.
May you stand upright and strong,
knowing right from wrong,
encouraging others in times of need to come along,
finding words to help them carry on.
May you never judge, envy or look down,
on any being, be it the clowns,
those that have many caps and gowns,
or the talks of the town.
Keep your ears and hearts open so all are around.
There love abounds.
In the end peace and joy will be found,
and you will have earned this regal crown.
