Some May Say


you are beyond
the word sane.
I know your surfing pain.
The river also
takes the thing
with her she does love,
and flows, to sing,
the song she knows
and the wish which blows,
shows her way to the sea.
Her desire for the unknown grows.
Your pain you condense into
your poetic pen,
you get easily whatever
you want, never lose but gain.
I know your pain.
Some may say you
are beyond the word sane.
But what I know, know a few.

    What is sane?
    Someone who is smarter than we?
    Beyond sane? I don't know what you mean.
    Rivers are collection agencies. In the occupation of transporting raindrops
    to the seas below. Take away the raindrop and what becomes of the river?
    A scarred memory etched into the sands of time.
    Is a man sane if he is alone?
    Does he go mad in solitary confinement?
    When the river delivers the last raindrop and there are no tears to shed
    will it have a spirit to present to God?
    I think not. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
