Wow, that was a good one, CR.I was immediately reminded of Wordsworth's 'Written in Early Spring', a short poem hardly noticed by many Wordsworth enthusiasts themselves! I see a striking influence there.'And much it grieves my heart to thinkWhat man has made of man'' Have I not reason to lamentWhat man has made of man?’

'In Buckinghamshire hedgerows
the birds nesting in the merged green density,
weave little bits of string and moths and feathers
in parabolic concentric curves'
and, working for concavity, leave spherical feats
of rare efficiency;
whereas through lack of integration,
avid for someone's fortune,
three were slain and ten committed perjury,
six died, two killed themselves, and two paid
fines for risks they'd run.
But then there is the icosasphere
in which at last we have steel-cutting at its
summit of economy,
since twenty triangles conjoined, can wrap one
ball or double-rounded shell
with almost no waste, so geometrically
neat, it's an icosahedron. Would the engineers
or Mr. J. O. Jackson tell us
how the Egyptians could have set up seventy-eight-
foot solid granite vertically?
We should like to know how that was done.
