In place of the end

 

All cruelty

is bad my friends

None of it

suits man

Planting trees is good waking up

in the morning and caring

for good beasts, gardening,

it is good to hear a calm

person breathe in sleep,

and to think of freedom,

to live for it,

to work for it all day,

the sleeping and waking of all children

is good,

and all cruelty is bad.
