Freedom

Fair must be the man who decides the fate of his brother
Rare is the desire for beauty on the inside rather than the out
Equal must be the leader to his people no matter how much they scream and shout
Evil is the beautiful maiden who lies and tricks one after another
Dangerous is the power hungry fool who fills the crowd with doubt
Ominous is the thought of man owning man, hopefully those days make a turnabout
Money it is the "wonderful" thing capable of turning us all against each other

Would be manifestations of nature in next year's spring portrayed through superb imagery by the great poet. Thanks for sharing here.
Needs the German alongside. Another of these 'distant beloveds' that populate the Goethe canon.
And this will continue for many more years to come....Nice poem, thanks for sharing.
