Expression

The glory of God is intelligence; intelligence fills the immensity of
space. Poetry reaches forth into ones heart, in refreshing moments that the
soul relinguishes,
momentarily self-perception , to be in harmony silently, with the world of
nature.

A valuant soul

Absolutely, a new-age personality with a will to triumph
over the loftest waves of mankind. Here, an individual in tune with a great
soul of social clevernes, of which
was ever grasping for enlightened waves of thought, that at times, was milk
from a devine source.

In the Old Age of the Soul

"I do not choose to dream; there cometh on me
Some strange old lust for deeds.
As to the nerveless hand of some old warrior
Forgetful of the council of elders,
Forgetful that who rules doth no more battle,
Forgetful that such might no more cleaves to him".
The Warrior has not the might of the ruler.

In the Old Age of the Soul

I do not choose to dream; there cometh on me
Some strange old lust for deeds.
As to the nerveless hand of some old warrior
Forgetful of the council of elders,
Forgetful that who rules doth no more battle,
Forgetful that such might no more cleaves to him
The Warrior has not the might of the ruler.

So beautifully and easily stating that our lives can be lived in our minds.
A reality so often unsaid.

Such truth for all us old warriors who contend still; each in his own
arena. And so beautifully put.
