There is poetry
In a rippling brook,
In a fly's beating wings,
In the dead skin of a snake -
In both time and space
Wherein myriad worlds spin!

Man, himself
Is an infinitely poetic
As are all his thoughts
Feelings, actions
And past history!

To appreciate
These words
As they are herein placed, ...
