12 Verses to Ponder as Adages

An adage (Latin: adagium) is a short, usually philosophical, but memorable saying which holds some important fact of experience that is considered true by many people, or that has gained some credibility through its long memetic use. (Wikipedia)

1.
Being tall you buffer the wind,
being strong you carry the weak,
the lowly and the meek;
gentle is the giant in you.
2.
Seeing our past we find little to share,
if the past is the present we are living in.
3. 
Necessity brings out ingenuity;
remoteness puts up the genuine test. 
4. 
Such is the fate of an era gone,
the master left his craft - li'l or none.
5.
Might plus providence or luck, 
fill the will that we may lack.
6. 
But the tower I know maybe simple and low,
yet reaches a height far away from sight.

7.
Rare is a friend in our slumber
and a guardian we may not remember. 
8. 
From green to gold they will become
as they store the power of the sun.

Wheatfield, Vincent Van Gogh
9.
When reality dies it becomes a dream,
and dream is reality again foreseen.
10.
They are those destined to live best in the wild,
where everything is so little, others barely thrive. 

11. 
For a lost lamb, Nature may please 
to make it into a new species,
but lays down a new treaty
above necessity and pity.


The Old Man and the Sea in watercolor, based on the novel of Ernest Hemingway
12.
The world may never know or meet the victor,
the master of the game, and all who wish 
a prize for every catch, or the wounded warrior
back in his hut dreaming if his big fish.~
