This Your Day
July 10, 2010
An ever present call
An insatiable thirst
An embracing quest
'Tis the Creator's hand
With each line drawn
Each stroke complete
Each touch of the clay
The call of Beauty
The call of Truth
This my Son, your destiny Divine.
"Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."
John Keats, Ode on a Grecian Urn
In loving devotion to my son
