Contemplation, excitement, and work


An old man with a dream
sits on top of a hill overlooking
a river

On that river is a young boy
sailing on a boat busily paddling himself
towards the shore of a faraway
town

And in that town is a butcher
displaying the head of a cow
to prove the kind of meat
that he is selling

They have never met
the hill, the river and the town

The sky who sees all these
knows what Life is all about
contemplation, excitement,
and work.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
