He Tells Her
He tell her that the Earth is flat- He knows the facts, and that is that.
In altercations fierce and long She tries her best to prove him wrong.
But he has learned to argue well.
He calls her arguments unsound And often asks her not to yell.
She cannot win. He stands his ground.
The planet goes on being round. ~Wendy Cope
I am an Idea Conceived in the mind of the Universe And interpreted in the minds Of the individuals I meet
Within myself I am constant Yet, I am as ever changing As the people who interpret me
I can control my actions But I cannot control their thoughts Therefore, I must do what I think is right And let others - Think what they will ~Javan

A Time to Talk
When a friend calls to me from the road And slows his horse to a meaning walk, I don't stand still and look around On all the hills I haven't hoed, And shout from where I am, "What is it?" No, not as there is a time to talk. I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground, Blade-end up and five feet tall, And plod: I go up to the stone wall For a friendly visit. ~Robert Frost
' Foundations' I built on the sand And it tumbled down, I built on a rock And it tumbled down. Now, when I build, I shall begin With the smoke from the chimney. translated from the Polish by Czeslaw Milosz.
