Then And Now
The old wind-mill serves as a trellis, now,
For vines that entwine, reaching high --
No more do the blades of the wind mast
Catch the breeze, as it flashes by.
This method has long been discarded;
In its stead, we have technical skill
That provides us with a short-cut --
To "utopia," if you will.
