Today's Beautiful Gem: "Their Beauty Has More Meaning" by Robinson Jeffers

"Yesterday morning enormous the moon hung low on the ocean,
Round and yellow-rose in the glow of dawn,
And the night-herons flapping home from the west looked golden.
Black is the ocean, black and sulphur the sky,
And the white seas leap. I honestly do not know which day is more
I know that tomorrow or next year or in twenty years
I shall not see these things:-- and it does not matter, it does not
They will be here. And when the whole human race
Has been like me rubbed out, they will still be here; storms, moon
and ocean,
Dawn and the birds. And I say this: Their beauty has more
Than the whole human race and the race of birds."

Om Santih! Peace! - J. K. Mohana Rao
