Strangest Harmony!

The clamoring of many thoughts;
steered a silent cry
for man's inglorious demise,
to what on earth is man compared?
if wisdom be numbered, he is first
if knowledge be known, he is best
and if beauty be found, he is finest....

The pondering of many thoughts;
ambled on the glittering star,
hovering through the moonlight ray;
peace and content well defined,
how it fits in place and time,
like its world is all there is;

But man; a fusion of forces,
the strangest harmony ever formed,
his straying will and unguarded mind,
the carnal grip of his impious flesh;
tossed him deep in the charmer's bait,
where he stood alone and lost;
fighting hard to harness his will.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
