The Thinker as Poet
Aus der Erfahrung des Denkens
How like a whisper the wind
engaging the cup of my ear.
How like a shout these echoing
passages filter northwest to southeast.
How like a growl the rustling leaves request
channel from shadows to true
How like a thought disappearing
into thin air these pages ruffling beneath
my pen beneath a passing sun
beneath the loud, enchanting
chimes of Sunday in spring.
