Morning Poem, January 2, 2017

 

.

Oh, how I would love to see sunshine

The ancients said that it fed the soul

And I believe them.

.

The new moderns say that it feeds the mind

And I believe them

And in the gloom of winter we are emptied of joy.

.

The fringe-folk say that it feeds the body!

Those in India who survive on sunlight and water

As if capable of photosynthesis

And I believe them.
