Article Excerpt:
    The lonely child who travels through
    The fearful waste and desolate fields,
    And listens to their barren tune,
    Greets as an unknown and best friend
    The terror in him, and he sings
    In darkness all the sweetest songs.

    —Chögyam Trungpa, from “The Silent Song of Loneliness” in Mudra: Early Poems and Songs
