Your Reading This, Be Ready
Starting here, what do you want to remember?
How sunlight creeps along a shining floor?
What went of old wood hovers, what softened
sound from outside fills the air?
Will you ever bring a better gift for the world
than the breathing respect that your carry
whatever you go right now? Are you waiting
for time to show you some better thoughts?
When you turn around, starting here, lift this
new glimpse that you found; carry into evening
all that you want from this day.
This internal you spent reading or hearing this,
keep it life --
What can anyone give you greater than now
starting here, right in this room, when you turn around?
