A way of life

A way of life

A poet is never idle
           he lives among people
and among things
           and his mind never ceases
to admire nor to enquire
           he cleans he tidies
he prepares food
           he eats and drinks

and even though he rests
           his mind is never still
he is determined
           to give beauty its due
and to praise whatever
           truth he perceives
and he knows that peace
           and love are intimately
bonded in the wisdom
           of the human heart
