My Symphony

To live content with small means;
to seek elegance             
                  rather than luxury,
and refinement               
                  rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable       
                     and wealthy, not rich;
to study hard, think quietly          
                        talk gently, act frankly;
to listen to stars and birds,          
                    to babies and sages,
with an open heart;
to bear all cheerfully,                
                                  do all bravely     
await occasions, hurry never.
                     In a word, to let the 
spiritual, unbidden, and         
                                    unconscious grow up                  
through the commonplace.
This is to be
my symphony.
