Robert Bridges
Did you hear the four winds calling?
I thought they whispered on purpose.
Their words came floating on the breeze
Like fallen leaves on open streams.

Did you see the five kings crowned?
The pomp of their procession proud.
The apparatus of their bombast eclat
With unicorns and lions eating their tails.

Did you breach the sixth degree of separation?
To experience unity in the circle
Spiritual hands clasp bodily hands
And deliver the moment from aloft and afield.
