*Henry Wadsworth Longfellow the Haiku Poet


departing
the footprints on
the sand of time

trust no future
let the dead past
bury its dead

the living present
heart within and
God o'erhead

each tomorrow
finds us
farther than today

art is long

time is fleeting,
our hearts like muffled drums
are beating
