Happiness does not depend on weather, Although it sometimes helps to see the
sun. Perhaps one finds one's best landscape within, Precisely where one's labor is
one's joy. Yearning finds fulfillment in
compassion. Given the uncertainties of weather, Rain and night in league against the
sun, All must find their happiness within, Depending on their love of life for
joy, United by the bonds of their
compassion. And all should value knowledge,
regardless whether Their learning gives them more sweet days of sun. In knowledge there's a brighter sun within, Opening one's heart and mind to joy, Necessary cradle of compassion.
