Just then, Wise Crane appeared, tall and serene,
Her elegant feathers, a shimmering sheen.
“Little Panda,” she said, “I see your desire,
To learn from the river, and knowledge acquire.”
“The secret,” she whispered, “is known as Wu Wei,
Effortless action, like the river’s fine play.
It teaches us not to struggle or force,
But to flow like the river, on its natural course.”
