Sit upright. Sit with solidity. Sit in peace

Here is the foot of a tree.
Here is an empty, quiet place.
Here is the cool green of the grass.
My child, why don’t you sit down?
Sit upright.
Sit with solidity.
Sit in peace.

This quote is from Thay's poem "Earth Touching" which can be found in Call Me By My True Names (Parallax Press, 1999)
