A LITTLE GREEN PICTURE
WHEN I COME BACK
Here are the leaves and the trees that
wear them. This is the brook that
dissembles long the way - running to
and from, stones and rocks and moss.
It's nice to see so much disorder
working well in its own manner.
I saw a man with a microscope
just this morning: 'Trying to get to the
bottom of things,' was all he said....
I replied, 'well you won't get to that
from here, you know...' Such science
is a funny thing. The needy and the
neediest, and all those cases below
the top : everyone, it seems, always
wanting to know about more about
what they don't have anyway.
