Leaving Myself Behind

lily pond-high-resolution-

I want to go soon and live away by the pond, where I shall hear only the wind

whispering among the reeds. It will be success if I shall have left myself behind.

But my friends ask what I will do when I get there. Will it not be employment

enough to watch the progress of the seasons?
