Song of the Birds

The sweet songs of the thrush,
The warbling notes of the robin,
Ditties sharp and clear of the blackbird,
Said to me:
'Do not dream idly.
Man is under the shadows
Of darkness and illusion.
He dreams of hate, power, sex infatuation.
Go, tell him of the One,
The basis of multiplicity.
Teach him to love and reflect
On the true and the transcendent.'
