sweeping the temple stairs

it's spring again

the ditches are filled with run-off

the fields are flooded

all the dirty water glimmers

the geese have returned

the geese have returned!

and all the dirty water glimmers!

the fields are flooded!

the ditches are filled with run-off!

it's spring again!

ask yourself what you need

take this, nothing more

"We all want progress. But progress means getting nearer to the place where you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man."

C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
