This Is A Job For Poetry

A  L  O  H  A !
"Grown men can learn 
from very little children 
for the hearts of little 
children are pure. 
the Great Spirit may 
show to them many things 
which older people miss."
                           Black Elk 

"Without a rich heart, 
wealth is an 
ugly beggar."
 Ralph Waldo Emerson

"It is the job of poetry 
to clean up our 
word-clogged reality 
by creating silences 
around things."

Nice birds and fence, I'd like to stand on one leg like that sometime and see how long I could hold that pose. - Great quote about poetry and silence.
