Patience

Dappled rays dance over nonchalant ground

while the stranger tiptoes through in dark warm cloth bound.

Sad silent snowflakes play out their descent

like sorrowful playwrights of sensitivity truly blent.

Neither joy nor solemnity affect his mask

and, giving thanks for this most rewarding task

of wisdom and ecstasy both combined;

he hath completed the most sacred entwined

quality allowed to the state of our race;

an acute adoration that forgets outside pace.

For if this is neglected, then of what worth

was our somewhat primitive, long-ago birth?

If ‘twas merely evolution of means to survive,

then let only the radicals secretly thrive.
