Sometimes I start looking at a stone.
I don't start thinking, Does it have feeling?
I don't fuss about calling it my sister.
But I get pleasure out of its being a stone,
Enjoying it because it feels nothing,
Enjoying it because it is not at all related to me.
Occasionally I hear the wind blow,
And I find that just hearing the wind blow makes it worth having been born.
I don't know what others reading this will think;
But I find it must be good since it's what I think without effort,
With no idea other people are listening to me think,
Because I think it without thoughts,
Because I say it as my words say it.
