MEDITATION ON A LEAF  - a poem
   
  Uncertain as life's doubtful span,
  This contrast twixt the dark and light
  Which constitutes an endless fight,
  Must always thus unanswered be
  Until that time is reached that we
  Can dwell upon our whole belief
  In thoughts unsullied as a leaf,
  Which comes from Nature, pure and clean,
  Intricate and lovely to be seen
  No matter what the body's flaws,
  No matter what Our Maker's laws,
  The Soul of man must rule supreme
