Arts Pearls

Poem #2

The ant,

in contrast to the lazy grass-


toils for food over the scurried ground

under the hot sun all summer

in anticipation of the bitter winter

oblivious to the present's gifts

looking always to the future

in preparation of bleaker times

toiling as long as the sun is high

in Miami.
