Climb to the Stars [en]

This is the poem that used to live on the home page, long ago. It tries to say something about how I see life. It has nothing to do with the Myth of India

The Stars are out of reach

So far above

In deep dark Space

Too far for me, too far for you

And so we crawl upon the earth

Today, tomorrow

Still we crawl

Until the wise man comes to say

“I climbed and climbed

For years and years

And I have seen

The glow of Truth”

As always in this kind of tale

There are the ones who crawl along

Today, tomorrow

Crawl and crawl

But there are also those who halt

Who lift their heads

Who stand upright

Who see that there is more to see

– and more to be –

Than just the ground below the Stars
