My Life

To live content with what God gives me;
To seek elegance rather than luxury, 
	and refinement rather than fashion;
To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich;
To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly;
To listen to stars and birds, to babies and sages, 
	with open heart;
To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, 
	await occasions, hurry never.
In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious
Grow up in my life through the common.
This is to be my life.
