Listeners, forgive my criticism of the four as an envelope
Bearing an unemotional, constricted and lackluster exterior.
My slow awakening to its’ patient, humble, steady success
Showed how I was sorely lacking in these admirable traits.
It can achieve the status of a distinguished practitioner,
An inspired instructor, or a phenomenal prodigy which
Requires consistent hard work to develop the profundity
Of its’ mind combined with the artistry of their hands.
This tenacious, prolific four is also reliable, prompt and dutiful
Who’ll consecrate all energies to manifest its’ ideas into form.
I now fully appreciate the creation of a strong foundation –
A basis for structured limitation leading to victory.
