Happiness does not depend on weather,
Although it sometimes helps to see the sun.
Perhaps one finds one's best landscape within,
Precisely where one's labor is one's joy.
Yearning finds fulfillment in compassion.
Given the uncertainties of weather,
Rain and night in league against the sun,
All must find their happiness within,
Depending on their love of life for joy,
United by the bonds of their compassion.
And all should value knowledge, regardless whether
Their learning gives them more sweet days of sun.
In knowledge there's a brighter sun within,
Opening one's heart and mind to joy,
Necessary cradle of compassion.
