A new perspective

Once came a man with head of greed,
High and mighty upon his steed.
Bewitched was he by ancient glades,
Of purple caps and orange blades.
While here he learned that riches sought
Are worthless when life is so short.
Homeward bound his heart filled with gold,
A new perspective to be told.

  1. “Homeward bound his heart filled with gold”

    Reminds me of one of Katherine Mansfield’s characters, Laura, in “The Garden Party.” She was in tears after having seen a dead man (who was a poor laborer) so peaceful and happy in his deathbed.

    Beautiful poem and photo, Robert!
