MEASURING THINGS

by David Knape

A mind is a measure
of so many things,
ameasure of curiosity
it surelybrings

A measure of hope
eternally springs,
there's also sadness
among other things

Measure your words
no arrows or slings,
alife itself
worth the measuring

Measurea man
bythe song that he sings,
the sky is his limit
so measure his wings.
