          Was There A Time by Dylan Thomas

          Was there a time when dancers with their fiddles
          In children’s circuses could stay their troubles?
          There was a time they could cry over books,
          But time has sent its maggot on their track.
          Under the arc of the sky they are unsafe.
          What’s never known is safest in this life.
          Under the skysigns they who have no arms
          have cleanest hands, and, as the heartless ghost
          Alone’s unhurt, so the blind man sees best.

          1. I didn’t know Thomas was a bit of a healthy cynic…this reminds me of my father….a poet at heart himself… he always said: “I’d cried because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.” Not sure of source but he was a great fan of Gibran. (Google accredits Helen Keller, Shakespeare, and even Gandhi…and some random dude who has a blog.)
