Children

Commitment
Engrave this Quote For we have thought the longer thoughts
And gone the shorter way.
And we have danced to devil's tunes
Shivering home to pray;
I take you now and for always,
For always is always now.

Rejects the majority of you,
Debating ends forthwith, and we

Holds up each summer day and shakes
It out suspiciously, lest swarms
Of grape-dark clouds are lurking there....
