Questions of Precedence


What is the meaning of starlight?
     Caught up in wonder,
     We look up from under
     Our blanket of life-giving air.

What is the purpose of dawn?
     Dawn does not need to
     Describe its utility,
     Dawn does not need to
     Declare itself useful.

How does a songbird generate wealth?
     Simply by sharing
     Its voice with the world.
