Foolish Man

Foolish man behind the fence,
Admiring greener meadows.
Tis merely an illusion,
Behind the beauty, lurk the shadows.

    So very true, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.... or so we think.

    Wise eyes, see much, wise words say even more.

    Brilliant brevity, Juan!
    I've a poem 'The other side of the river' on closely similar theme.
