THE CLOUDS ARE PAGODAS
The 'clouds today
Are Chinese pagodas.
One is a mandarin
On a golden throne;
One is warrior
With a sword of flame;
One is a lady
In a gown of blue,
And another crowns
The summit of Fuji.

Time is old;
The earth is old;
The stars are old,
But the moon is young
The moon is a goddess
I saw her on Fuji;
I saw her lift
The silken draperies
The morning star
Is her spirit.
I saw him on Fuji.
He fled at the first
Flush of dawn.
Confucius is old;
Time is old;
The earth is old;
The stars are old.
But the morning star
And the moon goddess
Are young on Fuji.

Has your education made you public spirited?
Has it made you a brother of the weak?
Have you learned how to make friends and keep them?

Can you look an honest man or a pure woman in the eye ?
Do you see anything to love in a little child?
