4 preludes on Playthings of the WInd
I first read this poem in 1964 in English class. It so mesmerized me that I cut out the page from our text book and still have it. I even wrote to Sandburg to express my appreciation for it. As a history/government major, it saddens me to see the world today. As a lawyer, I consult with people who are sad and depressed, divorcing other sad and depressed people. Wake up America. Start educating children again - not just preparing them for a stupid and waste of time test. This poem seems to be our prospect for the future.

The poem seems to be addressing the truth of impermanence.
