    Tradition Of The Elders.(a poem)
    The ordinary perception of space and time
    Falls mainly into the most familiar
    Of common place motifs and such
    Again and again we are persuaded
    Of being at the edge of another world
    In place of the familiar we confront the ultimate vision
    Which no longer obtains in our mind
    We make a casual contact
    With a rational world, transforming eternal structures
    With our ancestors in continuous time
    Almost to the limits of the material world
    To pay homage to the elders
    Who are more spirit than substance.
