It is a good idea to be alone in a garden
at dawn or dark
so that all its shy presences
may haunt you and possess you
in a reverie of suspended thought.
There is only one day left, always starting over:
it is given to us at dawn and taken away from us at dusk.
But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
That shines brighter and brighter until the full day.
