A rabbit noticed my condition

I was sad one day and went for a walk;
I sat in a field.
A rabbit noticed my condition and came near.
 
It often does not take more than that to help
at times-- to just be close to creatures who
are so full of knowing, so full of love that they
don't chat, they just gaze with their marvelous
understanding.
