Rest - Poem by David Taylor

Rest is such a natural state
Why should any hesitate
To rest as deep as the ocean basin
Without feeling any need to hasten
Rest is what we all do need
More important than to feed
Rest is what I sure do want
But only when I’ve finished
All the things that I must do
Or be admonished.
By me and me and sometimes you.
