Self-effacing, egoless and kind,
For neither conflict nor for rule designed,
He rather traipsed through Nature’s woods and meads
To find where hummingbird or linnet feeds.
A child of wilderness, yet tame of heart,
He chose in solitude to live apart
From busyness and craving, toil and pain,
An equal friend of sunshine and of rain.
What came he took with equanimity
As his just lot by karmic symmetry
But lent his hand to others in their needs
And taught by deeds how selflessness succeeds.
His single purpose was to live aligned
With clear directions of the cosmic mind.
