At dawn I unite with the breeze
To announce the coming of light;
At eventide I join the birds
In bidding the light farewell.
…As I embrace Slumber the eyes of
Night watch over me, and as I
Awaken I stare at the sun, which is
The only eye of the day.
…I look up high to see only the light,
And never look down to see my shadow.
This is wisdom which man must learn.
~ Khalil Gibran, Song of the Flower XXIII
