The limits of the mind are often mistaken to be the limits of the world.
-Immanuel Kant, submitted by Amy S., New Berlin WI
Sometimes things don’t go, after all,
from bad to worse.
Some years, muscadel faces down frost;
green thrives; the crops don’t fail.
Sometimes a man aims high, and all goes well.
A people sometimes will step back from war,
elect an honest man, decide they care enough,
that they can’t leave some stranger poor.
Some men become what they were born for.
Sometimes our best intentions do not go amiss;
sometimes we do as we meant to.
The sun will sometimes melt a field of sorrow
that seemed hard frozen;
may it happen for you.
