The Cold Awakening
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
The babble of a brook may bear the boon
Of talent which Mother Earth has given,
But the river, softer, deeper, broader,
Sings the wiser lyrics of nobler tunes.
Alas, the brook, that only knows the half
Of it all, has just small wonders to do.
His poor discernment moves the river to
Swell with tears as she cries, and sometimes laughs!
It is the river of truer wisdom
Which man wants to harness, pollute and damn,
To treat her as his means to foolish ends.
Man shuns those truths, which he ought to welcome.
Man keeps on spiting the Goddess, River.
How the penalties shall make man shiver!
