Poem Number 2785
All the trees in Birnam
Like cybernetic ships
move on their way to Dunsinane
like poems on puter chips
when in a hundred years or so
when love is common place
I like to join you for a drink
assuming humanoids embrace
a toast to us all..poetic love
For my buddy Allan...scotch and soda..jigger of gin..oh my do I feel hi.......jake

Science!true daughter of Old Timethou art!
Who alterest all things with thy peering eyes.
Why preyest thou thus upon the poet's heart,
vulture,whose wings are dull realities?
How should we love thee?or deem thee wise,
Who wouldst not leave him in the wandering
to seek for treasure in the jewelled skies,
albeit he soaredwith undauted wing?
Hast thou not dragged Diana from her car?
and driventhe hamadryad from the wood
to seek a shelter in some happier star?
Hast thou not tornthe Naiad from her flood,
the Elfin from the green grass,and from me
the summer dream beneath the tamarind tree?

what ever you are,however you are made ..the result is a joy to know! )jake
cling onto this straw a little Jake -- science/poetry -- think poe is wrong here "dragging diana from the car" ... to put i politely : hmmmmm! -- ever seen pictures from Hubble space telescope ?, culums of creation in the eagle nebula..pure poetry if ever i saw such thing -- no easy answers here -- allan
yep all said and done in the middle somewhere we meet...)))jake Agree Poe a bit radical ..man like his morphine..shouldn't bite the hand that feeds ya so to speak...Jake
