Thought Monkeys in zoos or forests wild Appeal to every curious child Scratching, grabbing, play and chase Clinging, chattering and making face If we are careless we will find A restless, jumping monkey mind Aimless roaming thoughts like strays No fixed abode and childish ways As infants loved to play with toys Outgrown now, they’ve lost their joys So gather up the scattered things Attention is your search light beam Clear the way with strength of will Take command, mind’s vessel fill With noble thoughts from every side Then settled uncluttered will joy reside No ripples or trivial journeys to make Now mind is clear like glassy lake Prayer O Lord, by your loving grace I have turned my thoughts to Thee; while I yearn for you, in moments of childishness my attention strays. At these times, please whisper in my childish ear that I, your child might turn to Thee.
