Seasons

I have no books Nor have I teachers But him who is enough Where life’s inside the sap that flows All else besides can adds nothing more! I find a longing For some one same But this chalice who can bear Where like and similar are not same There comes a parting of the ways, in disbelief! I lose a longing To have and hold Leaves I cast as I grow old And having nothing losing all Life’s hope springs when there is everything Born the longing For one who loves But who can love the thief And live in him who is enough Who knows he only takes to give is everything! Those who hold Or those who empty Who can tell the difference They that live in him who is enough Through emptied jars of clay lose everything! And these are born not self made
