A stone is deprive of the gift of smiling
Neither has it contained a habit of scowling
A stone is unable to display emotions
Never your partner in sorrow or singing

The life expectancy of a stone is high
This extended age is all in vain
Flower has the shortest life-span
Its fragrance is eternal, soothes the pain
