For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

There's no earthly way of knowing

There's no earthly way of knowing
Which direction they are going!
There's no knowing where they're rowing,
Or which way they river's flowing!
Not a speck of light is showing,
So the danger must be growing,
For the rowers keep on rowing,
And they're certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing...

    i would give this charming/grizzly poem a 7, possibly an eight..some of his work is suitable for children,
    however, most poems are too grizzly for my six and eight year old granddaughters.
    any adult who has a sense of humor should find his body of work utterly amusing and delightful. most
    of these poems point (brilliantly) to the foibles that we have....
