Sunday Poem

If you have time to chatter,
Read books.
If you have time to read,
Walk into mountain, desert and ocean.
If you have time to walk,
Sing songs and dance.
If you have time to dance,
Sit quietly, you happy, lucky idiot.
– Nanao Sakaki

On Memorial Day, I had a potluck afternoon picnic with some of my students, and asked them to bring a piece of writing that they had recently enjoyed. Connie brought along this charming poem.
