Don't confuse simplicity with simplemindedness! This poem has great depth.
It reminds me that when I look at myself "warts and all," really, I'm 80%
warts. God, grant me the gift of perspective on my own life. It would be
much more comfortable NOT to think about all the ways I've fallen, and
those I've taken with me. Remind me when I'm living in the other 20%, that
what constitues a real triumph is to forget that triumph matters at all.

Crane has such imagination, bringing the image of mankind all swaying as
blades of grass. Such simplicity yet the one line at the end says so
much..
Crane is enjoyable to read, more should enjoy.

This is a great poem. It shows the lowness of mankind. But because we are
humble, God sees our heart and wwelcomes us for being humble.
