Recitation in the style of the temple boy, Pathya Vat.
Temple Boy

I climb the steps
of the temple
my life simple
dedicated

my Lord Buddha
I have waited
time undated
ready to serve

I clear my mind
watch and observe
listen with verve
my chores are done

with earth below
above the sun
I become one
open to all
