especially the willows and the honey locust,
equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,
they give off such hints of gladness,
I would almost say that they save me, and daily.
in which I have goodness, and discernment,
and never hurry through the world
but walk slowly, and bow often.
and call out, "Stay awhile."
The light flows from their branches.
"and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine."
