Good

It is not good to want. We all know that.
It's better to accept, and, with the baby
Back asleep, the leaves returning to the trees,
The air becoming warm, the river flowing
Silently below on its way to the sea, I find
I have nothing to want, and that, I know,
Is good.

Acceptance is calming. Acknowledging that things are what they are can be relieving.
