AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

FOR the CHILDREN

The rising hills, the slopes, 
of statistics 
lie before us. 
The steep climb 
of everything, going up, 
up, as we all 
go down. 

In the next century 
or the one beyond that, 
they say, 
are valley, pastures, 
we can meet there in peace 
if we make it. 

To climb these coming crests 
one word to you, to 
you and your children: 

stay together 
learn the flowers 
go light

Gary Snyder
