Eco - Poem by Ray Mather

I want to be more economical
Measure my life with a careful tread
The games we play are so tragic-comical
So much is spoken, so little is said

I don’t want to talk about the weather
Or how the nights are drawing in
Have conversations as light as a feather
Nod agreement with a polite grin

I don’t want to perform a duty
Play my part in some grim pantomime
I want to experience the beauty
So much to value, so little time
