In these few moments when you first enter the park, there is a sense of oneness with the whole of creation; a feeling that goes beyond description. Freely given, the elegance of this small bird and the beauty of his song, lifts the spirit and renews the soul, ready for a new day. Nothing else need be said; all alone, lost in thought, my feelings drift away…
come once again –
do not be too rough
on the delicate branches and buds
of the green willows.
