Observe the Maggots
~~ ~~ 1 ~~ ~~
Observe the maggots; climb the stairs;
Smell the coffee; ignore grey hairs;
Your cup is full, you need no more—
Go forth in peace, and close the door.
~~ ~~ 2 ~~ ~~
Enough is enough, fool on the hill;
Hush all your babbling, and just be still.
~~ ~~ 3 ~~ ~~
The one who leaves will return,
Having seen the mountain burn,
And the crocus will rejoice
When it hears the master’s voice.
~~ ~~ 4 ~~ ~~
Neck and neck the horses run,
Uphill, downhill, just for fun.
