Nirvana of Cleopatra

I made my peace with destiny and fate [N]

Withal, I am content [Anon.]

I'm floating in a transcendental state [N]

My angst is all unpent. [Gussie]

Nirvana beckons just outside the frame [F]

Just beyond my grasp [N]

And calls me by a whispered secret name [Anon.]

Shall I clutch it, then? The asp? [Dassn't Say]

I content myself that this is all there is [Anon.]

Which isn't much, I know [F]

It isn't mine or yours, or hers, or his [N]

Nor is it high or low [F]
