    Good afternoon! i am so proud to read a poem like the sunrise song, because to me it proves a point that it is my time to rule the world! Hence, i can because anything is possible according to my own point of view. Have a nice day!

Laus Mariae

Across the brook of Time man leaping goes
On stepping-stones of epochs, that uprise
Fixed, memorable, midst broad shallow flows
Of neutrals, kill-times, sleeps, indifferencies.
So twixt each morn and night rise salient heaps:
Some cross with but a zigzag, jaded pace
From meal to meal: some with convulsive leaps
Shake the green tussocks of malign disgrace:
And some advance by system and deep art

[Hata Bildir]
