If I had the choice of life or death

 If I had the choice of life or death
 Of course I would choose life
 For all its fettered foibles
 Its chaos and its strife
  
 I’d choose it for the other
 Would assemble me before
 The unknown perfidy of gloom
 Like sullen days of yore
  
 I’d choose it for its smile
 Under skies of gray or blue
 For its absolute refusal
 To make a chum of you
  
 I’d choose it for the challenge
 And no matter what that be
 The beauty and the essence
 Of my wistful silver sea
  
 For the gardenia that is blooming
 In the garden I call mine
 And when it droops and wilts it says;
 I’ll meet you when it’s time
