Hypotheses long used are not thought
Hypothetical, but facts your teachers taught.
Quite so, that which is itself is hypothetical,
As is what ought to be, keeping the ball
Of living rolling within the limits of the fence,
Like scaffolding for the structure: common sense.
Often, we use an idea for so long
That we forget how it is, like a song
Heard every day until deemed noise,
Like raindrops and sunbeams, at first joys,
Which after time are not judged joyful:
Repetition renders beauty void and null.
So, savor your black coffee, but remember, the cup
Is an inverted miniature of what's really up:
The dome of heaven, full of stars!
Remember how hypothetically cute you are!
Behold anew the beauty of a blade of grass,
With its tip the point of a beautiful, naturalist mass!
Author's Notes: "Hypotheses are scaffolding erected in front of a building and then dismantled when the building is finished. They are indispensable for the workman, but you mustn't mistake the scaffolding for the building."
"When a rainbow has lasted as long as a quarter of an hour we stop looking at it."
J.W. von Goethe
