Summer approach

Approach the soul as a wild thing

with soft words and gentle tones

       slowly

with patience and stillness.

 

Approach the soul as a wild thing

only then begin to hear

 

perpetual silence

 

with sweet accompaniment:

the twang of the breath

the music of the breath.

 

Approach the soul as a wild thing

with soft words and gentle tones

       slowly

with patience and stillness.
