Earth Prayers – William Ellergy Channing

cairnworldTo live content with
small means,
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,
babes and sages,
with open heart,
to bear all cheerfully,
do all bravely,
await occasions,
hurry never–
in a word, to let hte spiritual,
unbidden and unconscious,
grow up through the common.
This is to be my symphony.
