Korean Vilanelle

Korean Vilanelle

Be kind in moments when the birds sing out.
So much is made of petty things each day.
Wake up to fill your senses, clear all doubt.

It does not matter if you’re frail or stout.
You do not dance alone, so learn to play.
Be kind in moments when the birds sing out.

Your success may be what you’re about,
Until matters of the mind get in the way.
Wake up to fill your senses, clear all doubt.

Money should not be, but is what gives us clout.
Each day do something to help those who labor for low pay.
Be kind in moments when the birds sing out.

Cheer for your foe even when you suffer a great rout.
Karma outweighs fate, so act without delay.
Wake up to fill your senses, clear all doubt.

Unless a saint, many will see you as a lout.
Do what it takes to make your best friends stay.
Be kind in moments when the birds sing out.
Wake up to fill your senses, clear all doubt.
