HIGH AND LOW

CATHEDRAL

Holy is the mountain
To spirits dwelling there;
Wild are the birds and beasts
Which ride and breathe its air.

Endless are the glories
Of rock and spire and space;
Soulless is the man who
Would desecrate this place.

COST OF LIVING

The believer is happy; the doubter is wise.
–Hungarian proverb

Once I was happy;
Now I am wise.
Once I believed
Both truth and lies.
Now I doubt both….
And wisdom cries.
