Remarkable is (not) a Word

It always seemed so queer to me
That all man’s life is like a flea’s
That comes and falls to springly flowers
And ticks away upon all hours

Remarkable is not a word
That comes to mind to be unheard
When speaking of humanity
But I ask, “What of sanity? ”

Are we not things upon a rock?
Of transcendent reason that we mock
To be ended, and born, a flock
With seconds ticking on our clock

Yet I can’t help but humbly see
Man’s place in this eternity
Of hopes and wishes unfulfilled
But dreams for such grounds to be tilled

    i like the artwork on poet's page. and i enjoyed this poem for its rhyming and flow and some of its phrases and its title............though i don't claim to follow much of the meaning of the poem; if i take the opportunity some day perhaps i'll get to understand it more. but understanding is not crucial for me to enjoy this. thanks for sharing.
