“Harmony”by: Bill Worrell
We tune the strings,
Tighten the reeds,
Adjust the slides.
Even the drums we tune
So there will be Harmony.
For that we have no tolerance.
We demand harmony, euphony.
The one who sings out of key is admonished.
Even with art we demand harmony.
We demand rhythm, line, color, form, shape,
proportion, texture, and value.
With all these we demand harmony.
We perceive the balance of Nature
And consider it harmony.
We marvel at astronomy,
At the rhythm and harmony of the universe.
Are we the only creatures that demand harmony
Yet live in discord?
The shaman teaches:
“Let your lives flow with the seasons.
Tune your hearts and minds to be considerate of others.
Be considerate of your self.
Be considerate of all creatures.
Be considerate of the Earth.
Let your beings be in harmony with all nature.
Let there be harmony in all things.”
