Let me tell the tale by Erin Hanson.

Let me tell the tale
Of

a girl who didn't stop,
Who climbed up every mountain
Without a pause upon the top.
She'd dance until each blade of grass
Was clothed in drops of dew,
And the sun knew her by name
But the silver moon did too.
For a fear had settled in her bones;
A fear of sitting still,
That if you're not moving forward
It must mean you never will.
So in time her dance got slower
And she looked at all she'd seen,
But found gaps inside the places
That she'd never fully been,
For she was a human doing
Human moving, human seeing,
But she'd never taken time
To simply be a human being.

    Another poem by Erin Hanson and a painting by Erin Hanson. Two different Erin Hansons!

    @ I didn't notice that! Thank you for the correction. I wonder why this error is there. 🤔

    She seems like the goddess of spring. it's a beautiful and a little melancholy work.

    @ I didn't write it. It's the copy of text I received.

    @ Oh, it's not an error. I checked online. Doing is the correct word here. Meaning she was busy doing things and moving and not slowing down. Much like the theme of the poem.
