Wisdom of the Ancient


True gaiety moves you close to tears
When happiness is cloned you 're moved to tear
Where I am, I am with my angels
When I vamoose, I vamoose with them all
Orange and lime's trees sprout same leaves
In taste they are farther apart than day and night.

    My good friend I am fully awake now and really enjoyed this beautiful poem
    a lot. And it is such a wonderful truth which I now see with ease.
    I love the way you bring things forward for us to ponder for a few seconds and
    then of course there is a cognition.............. Good One
