  everyone
exclaims
at beauty--
and immediately
the idea
of the ugly
is born
everyone
senses
the good,
but
the label
evokes
the bad
what is
suggests
what is not
the rough
complements
the easy
the long
measures
the short
high
emerges
from low
the wise
act
without ado,
teach
without words
spawning
countless
creations

without
a single law
giving
life
without
claiming
ownership
allowing
natural
process
without
clutching
blessing
without
boasting,
achieving
invisibly
by not
talking about
virtue
you don't
lose it
