If I could take a bite of the whole world And feel it on my palate Iíd be more happy for a minute or so... But I donít always want to be happy. Sometimes you have to be Unhappy to be natural... Not every day is sunny. When thereís been no rain for a while, you pray for it to come. So I take unhappiness with happiness Naturally, like someone who doesnít find it strange That there are mountains and plains And that there are cliffs and grass... What you need is to be natural and calm In happiness and in unhappiness, To feel like someone seeing, To think like someone walking, And when itís time to die, remember the day dies, And the sunset is beautiful, and the endless night is beautiful... Thatís how it is and thatís how it should be... Alberto Caeiro, The Keeper of Sheep
