The Silent Sword

(April 2,1997)

Supremacy


We humans,
Capable of creating massive structures of
Wood, iron, steel, and stone.
We humans,
Capable of traversing
Forests, deserts, seas, and skies.
We humans,
Capable of annihilating whole
Towns, cities, peoples, and species

Without so much as a thought
As to how much power we hold.

Yet we yield to a power
Without physical form.
When confronted by love, we bow,
Brought down to our knees, we bow.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
