Wise Men In Their Bad Hours Analysis

Wise men in their bad hours have envied

The little people making merry like grasshoppers

In spots of sunlight, hardly thinking

Backward but never forward, and if they somehow

Take hold upon the future they do it

Half asleep, with the tools of generation

Foolishly reduplicating

Folly in thirty-year periods; the eat and laugh too,

Groan against labors, wars and partings,

Dance, talk, dress and undress; wise men have pretended

The summer insects enviable;

One must indulge the wise in moments of mockery.

Strength and desire possess the future,

The breed of the grasshopper shrills, "What does the future

Matter, we shall be dead?" Ah, grasshoppers,

Death's a fierce meadowlark: but to die having made

Something more equal to the centuries

Than muscle and bone, is mostly to shed weakness.

The mountains are dead stone, the people

Admire or hate their stature, their insolent quietness,

The mountains are not softened nor troubled

And a few dead men's thoughts have the same temper.
