Age Group: Adult
I might have been soaring with the angels
Ever after! But happily? Not quite.
I am too wicked for that buoyancy
Which comes with a sound conscience. Far away
Indeed are those wings, all spotlessly white!
There, I would live forever in yearning;
With apes I would risk dying of boredom.
Too wicked for angels, too bright for chimps,
Far also have I traveled from the trees
Of jungles where my cousins are at home!
Still, in my heart I do yet hold a piece
Of that goodness of nature, securely!
A sound conscience is a great possession,
To be gained just by those with great powers.
The sound conscience? Hardly meant to be ours!
But out of the depths of ourselves may come
Enough good nature to get good deeds done.
When showing virtues, we do earn merit.
Over the long distance, I still hear Pan
Like my aging father, so enchanting!
I make a call to him, like a young man
Writing home from some far reach of the Earth.
