The Small One in a Sapphire

(New PR207)

 

I am looking over a collection of quotes

And stories from people long dead

But the spirit the fire

 

Of their stories lives on

It does

Does it not

 

Keep coming back to this:

We are outlasted only by beauty:

Emerson said we ought therefore

 

To hitch our wagon to a star

Even if it’s the small one

In a sapphire
