Commentary by Ivan M. Granger
Something about those closing lines brings a smile to my face:
Squander the day, but save the soul,
I heard him say.
It reminds me of Whitman's great line: "I loaf and invite my soul."
A reminder for us all today from the simple wisdom of the lark to be at ease in the timeless. That God-self in each one of us, it is recognized in deep peace, not in our endless doings...
Remember to do a little wise squandering today! :-)
