Idealists - Poem by Alfred Kreymborg

Brother Tree:
Why do you reach and reach?
Do you dream some day to touch the sky?
Brother Stream:
Why do you run and run?
Do you dream some day to fill the sea?
Brother Bird:
Why do you sing and sing?
Do you dream --
Young Man:
Why do you talk and talk and talk?
