Waiting for the rabbit to show


I was told about the day,
to wait by the sea shores
for a ship; a ship had no name,
nor color was given plenty of
ships shown above the sea waters.
Queer i was not summoned, and they
all passed.
Then i waited, a morning grew to a
sunless noon, a noon to evening
and a subsequent moonless and starless
night. By then i could not see more ships
passing by, by then i could go back as the
time had passed. The stars and moon
had that night abandoned and sunk
to misery, by then i fell asleep
and snored a dreamless night.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
