Perform exquisitely for the Queen
Reveal to her talents unseen

Practice and grow like bamboo root
Sprout fast and quick like bamboo shoot

Be immune to Autumn rot
Bundle yourself in a walnut cot

Five summers and five winters
Of a network that nets and splinters

Into new beginnings of old ends
Out of loneliness and unto friends

Receive the praise you deserve
New grandmaster, and serve.
