Perhaps You Should Just Sit

This is not the day for great action,
this is not the day for tedium –
now is the moment of least urgency,
all needs are met, all tasks are done,
let us not hurry to invent new ploys,
nor grasp for the plows of the future –
this moment is unalloyed,
still, shining, precious,
enjoy it as it is
and speak no more.
