Worlds, in Grains of Sand!
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
My, we've come a long way from the hourglass!
Still, it's something so poetic, to watch
A watch made up of grains of sand that pass,
Pinch by pinch, through a small hole! It's no match
For a modern watch as far as the span
Of time measured. Yet sooner or later,
Both run out. No doubt, the lifespan of man
Is longer. This hardly makes him greater!
"Song of Myself" makes this plain. The make up
Of the hourglass proves imagination.
Man so forsakes what's better to take up,
What would make him a better creation!
Treasure what you have and you have treasure.
Sound values are what an hourglass measures.
from "Song of Myself - 32", Walt Whitman
I think I could turn and live awhile with the animals....
they are so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them sometimes half the day long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition, ...
