A Taoist Poem

Tao te Ching

“Is not the action of nature like the stretching of a bow?
The high, it pulls down; the low, it lifts up;
It takes from what is in excess
In order to make good of what is deficient.
Who can take what they have in excess and offer it to others?”



Today's poem is thanks to Way of tao

You can see previous poems by going to "Message Board." All members are welcome to post a poem under "Today's poem", on the message board. The poem is usually posted between 10pm the previous night and 9 am on the day of the poem. It could be your own or someone else's. It should be something to do with nature, and ideally it should have something to do with the particular day.
