Song - Sounds of Autumn
"We could learn to stop when the sun goes down
and when the sun comes up.
We could learn to listen to the wind;
we could learn to notice that it’s raining
We could reconnect with the weather
that is ourselves,
and we could realize that it’s sad.
The sadder it is,
and the vaster it is,
the more our heart opens.
We can stop thinking
that good practice is
when it’s smooth and calm,
and bad practice is
when it’s rough and dark.
If we can hold it all in our hearts,
then we can make a proper cup of tea."
