Meeting the Prince of the Royal woods

from William E. Channing

Will you…

Live contentedly with small means

Seek elegance over luxury,

and refinement rather than fashion

Seek to be worthy, not respectable

wealthy, not rich?

Will you choose to listen to stars and birds,

babes and sages?

Study hard, think quietly

act frankly, talk gently?

Await occasions, hurry never?

Let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up though the common?

Will you stop being busy?
Stop hiding who you really are?
Stop taking it all so seriously
Start something (anything)?
Start scaring yourself?
Start getting rid of the crap
Stop following the rules
Choose being happy over being right~
