No matter how many ways modern life tries to speed things up, the most important things will continue to unfold at their own pace.  Thank goodness!




You can’t rush the river

Or the tides of the sea

Or the delicate sunrise

So please don’t rush me

1. You can’t rush a rose

As its petals unfurl

Or a ripening apple

Or the turn of the world


2. You can’t rush a full moon

Or the coming of spring

Or the growth of a baby

Or a bird on the wing


3. All good things take time

They sometimes move slow

They each have their rhythm

They each have their flow
