God gave the heavens of starry suns,

And the bright meteor’s streaks.

He gave the moon, now tramped by man,

(Not green, point-headed freaks).

He gave the sun, a central source

Of life, food, and living’s heat.

And made the “day star,” in His great plan,

The ultimate source of meat.  – eab, 12/74

“The Road Not Taken”


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;


Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,


And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the
first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.


I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
