Lightly Light

Yutang Lin

Temporary enthusiasm would eventually turn light and fade.
Endeavors sustained for long years could seem taken lightly.
No means to reveal profound feelings and aspirations lightly,
They just flow around all over daily activities and responses.


Temporary enthusiasm would fade away after a while. Long-term endeavors become lightly ordinary. In the absence of greetings and chatting, busy with all sorts of Dharma services. High ideals were long forgotten, while services have become regular and constant.
