A found poem from Longfellow’s “A Psalm of Life”, the theme suggested by Pat R. for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday. I’ve constructed a shadorma with the help of the Collage Oracle.
“…Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time…”
be not like
each bivouac is a dream–
heart sailing the soul
