It Seems Hard



We settle for what seems good
when what is good
seems hard.
We do so instinctively,
and therefore our doing
is in accordance with nature.
Must we pronounce
that this does not suffice?
Must we declare
our opposition to nature
and to natural ways
of being?  Must we insist
that what we can dream
we must make real?
